In “marriages which had lasted five years or more, and in which the husbands were under 75 years of age, ... one marriage in 6·5 was unproductive".

”Reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the abscence of disease or infirmity, in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its function and processes. Reproductive health therefore implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe sex life and that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so”.
United Nations, 1995, p. 40

Total fertilitets rate er antallet af levende-fødte børn per kvinde, efter afslutning af hendes reproduktive periode (typisk udgangen af 49 år).
Total fertility rate er sammensat af biologiske, medicinske og samfundsmæssige forhold.

ART is increasingly used around the world – but the technology may not be equaly available for all those who need it – the infertile couples?
Denmark: 21 Fertility Clinics
9 public, 12 private
Cycles per million inhabitants
The ideal equilibrium:
Patients have access to and use treatments to such an
extend that it will meet their demands.
The question:Would the demands be similar in different countries?
How many cycles per year would it take to meet the demands?
International estimates of infertility prevalence and treatment-seeking:
potential need and demand for infertility medical care
Jacky Boivin1,4, Laura Bunting1, John A. Collins2 and
Karl G. Nygren3 . Hum. Reprod, 2007, 22, 1506
Current prevalence of infertility, 12 month definition (25 surveys)
More developed nations4 – 17%
Less developed nations7 – 9 %
Overall mean of 9.0%
Seeking of Medical care (17 surveys)
More developed nations56 (42 – 76%)Less developed nations51 (27 – 74%)
Great similarity between countries and regions of the world

Potential need (current prevalence of infertility)
Number of women 20–44 years in marital or consensual union

Demand for treatment.
Number of infertile couples seeking medical care.
Estimate (56%) 6 150 771
Boivin J et al. Hum Reprod, June 6th, 2007
Our ”target group” is 9% of females in the reproductive age groups (in our part of the world)
The 56% of those couples that seek medical care correspond to 6 million couples annually in the most developed part of the world – and 5-6 times more in the rest of the world.

treatment of infertility. Hum Reprod Update, 2004, 10,309-16.
Average current National use of ART is much
below the optimal (5-8.000 cycles/mio)
needed if all eligible couples should be
given the full benefits of ART.
Consequence: law evasion – cross border reproductive care
Consequence: Socio-economic inequalities
Consequence: Lower use, higher drop-out and loss of pregnancies

Ease of referral
Political criterias for referral
(Who ”qualify for ART”)
ART is considered a simple treatment
Single embryo transfer
NHS ART - a sign of acceptance from society – not just economy
Regulated and monitored by society – this cause trust and confidence in ART
As professionals we need to be active in political decision making as well as among professional colleaques to make ART accessible, affordable and acceptable for those who need it, by:
