Action 9: Educate Professionals, NGOs and Governments


9. Educate professionals, NGOs and governments: Increased knowledge of infertility among professionals, NGOs and governments will improve fertility services.

Knowledge about infertility should be integral to reproductive and sexual healthcare delivery services. This is important because much of the initial counselling and basic tests can be accommodated within existing infrastructure and staffing levels. Greater stakeholder knowledge about infertility and effective ways of investigating and treating it will facilitate targeted delivery of healthcare that is effective and affordable. (Ali, 2011)
