News: Fertility rate halves across world

12 November 2018 by Eleanor Lynam

The number of children born per woman has halved globally since 1950, according to a study published in The Lancet.

Researchers found that although the global population has roughly tripled from 2.6 billion to 7.6 billion, the fertility rate has dropped from 4.7 live births per woman in 1950 to 2.4 in 2017. As well as women having better access to education, employment and health services, the fall in fertility rate has been attributed to better infant survival rate and an increase in the average age of marriage.

News: In defence of IVF

29 October 2018 by Dr Raj Mathur

It is striking how IVF has become part of the national conversation in ways that would have been unthinkable one or two decades ago. Not all news has been good news; in the recent past, reports have revealed examples of unethical practice relating to inducements for donating eggs and sex selection. These are instances of the press doing its job of holding professionals to account, and present an opportunity for the fertility sector as well as its regulator, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA)
