Choosing whether or when to have a child is a human right.

But that right is meaningless if people can’t afford or access fertility care.

Meanwhile, fertility rates are falling around the world – affecting men and women equally –

and jeopardizing economic growth and social stability.

Yet, only a small percentage of people who need help having a child get the care they need – and that includes modern families.
Governments, companies, and health care professionals need to make fertility care a priority.

We’re calling
on policymakers to:

1

Adopt family-building policies that include equitable access to, and reimbursement of, fertility care.

2

Support development of simpler, more affordable high-quality assisted reproductive treatments.

3

Prevent infertility risk factors such as infection, air pollution and proliferation of toxic chemicals.

4

Support increased access to care, especially in low-resourced countries
