World Congress

The World Congress on Fertility and Sterility is an event nearly as old as the IFFS itself. The consideration to hold a congress was explored when the IFFS formed in 1951. The first congress, held in 1953 in New York City was a joint meeting with the American Society for the Study of Sterility (later to become ASRM). The IFFS triennial congress has drawn numerous international luminaries from within the field of reproductive health care during the course of its 62 year history as a global event.


International Symposium

Bringing science and practice home, the IFFS international symposium series focuses on topical areas of reproductive health, relevant to regional concerns, presenting cutting edge research, contemporary review and topical debate. Our Scientific Committee works extensively to create an exemplary and innovative program.



Workshops can range from 50 to more than 600 attendees. These individuals represent the full range of reproductive healthcare professionals from physicians to embryologists, to nurses, counselors and researchers. The IFFS curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of an event’s specific audience and is applicable to trainees and experienced professionals alike.


Ambassador Program

The IFFS Officers as Ambassadors for infertility and the infertile support capacity development  in reproductive healthcare through political advocacy, promoting access to care, support of emerging professional groups in middle income and developing nations and paving the way for educational and research initiatives.


Online Learning platform

IFFS is developing a multi-media platform to expand our educational mission. Content will include basic courses such as research and abstract writing, access to past lectures, focused topic teaching, and live streaming of IFFS activities. Online learning will ensure the IFFS curriculum is accessible to healthcare providers around the world.
