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.
