Infertility as a Reproductive Justice Issue

In the United States and globally, health care disparities are pervasive; infertility prevention and treatment are not exceptions. The high price of many services, inaccessibility of medical care, infertility that could have been prevented but was not (e.g., untreated infections), and differences in success rates with treatment pose immense burdens for infertile individuals. As sexual and reproductive care providers, Title X organizations are charged with providing basic infertility care for underserved populations and for those who lack insurance coverage. This AOI highlights the barriers to care people with involuntary childlessness due to infertility face and outlines the importance of equitable, inclusive, and accessible infertility care for all.

After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify barriers and facilitators to perceived and actual access to health care for people who desire and have difficulty achieving pregnancy.
  2. Describe the epidemiology of infertility in the US.
  3. Discuss infertility as a reproductive justice issue.

1.0 continuing education credits (CNE and CPH) are available for this activity. To obtain continuing education credits, participants must register and successfully pass a quiz for this activity. For further information and/or to register, visit www.HealthEKnowledge.org.
