Every year Canadian Infertility Awareness Week marks a good time to reflect on the state of fertility and infertility care in Ontario and across the country. This is what the country’s fertility care looked like in May 2016.
In 2015 infertility advocates have accomplished a great deal. Funding is in place and many Ontario infertility patients are now accessing their funded round of IVF treatment. That’s a huge success for Ontario patients and advocates and frankly, it saves money and helps to create healthier families. Over 50 different clinics across the province now offer government funded fertility treatments. We are already seeing the first pregnancies as a result of the Ontario IVF (in vitro fertilization) funding program.
