With one in six Australian couples struggling to conceive, overcoming infertility has become big business. According to statistics, 3.1% of births in Australia are a result of assisted reproductive technology (ART). However, IVF success rates have recently been brought into question with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission currently monitoring the claims being advertised by fertility clinics.
The 2017 Assisted Reproductive Technology Summit will bring together senior level industry experts to give updates on regulation and legislation debates, and discuss the clinical and ethical issues and challenges currently facing the fertility industry.
This year’s topics will include:
- The problem with ART statistics
- The rights of donor conceived individuals
- Should commercial surrogacy be legalised in Australia?
- The new Victorian sperm donor anonymity laws: Will other States follow suit?
- Genetics & the selection process
- ‘Three parent’ IVF decision – will Australia follow Britain’s example?
- Private Health Insurance and ART
- ‘Miracle pregnancy’ – how to manage client’s expectations
