Welcome to Fertility Fairness

For more than 20 years Fertility Fairness (previously the National Infertility Awareness Campaign) has campaigned for people to have comprehensive and equal access to a full range of appropriate NHS investigations and treatments for infertility; this includes the right to access up to three full cycles of IVF treatment free on the NHS.

Fertility Fairness has created an infographic which briefly summarises the current provision (2017) of IVF in England. You can download it here (PDF 81Kb):

There is evidence that suggests the effects of infertility, both financially and emotionally, are devastating. Since its establishment, Fertility Fairness has pushed for recognition of the psychological effects of infertility, which if left untreated, can cause unnecessary and long-lasting harm to an individual’s mental and general wellbeing.

Fertility Fairness and its members are working hard to raise awareness of infertility and what is expected of the NHS amongst policy makers at a local and national level. For details on how you can help, please visit the ‘How can I help?’ page.
