The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that every sixth adult in the world is faced with the problem of infertility.

According to a report published by the WHO, many people around the world face infertility problems throughout their lives.

17.5% of the adult population suffers from infertility, demonstrating the urgent need to expand access to affordable and quality fertility services.

Infertility, whose prevalence varies slightly between regions, stands out as a global health problem.

Infertility rates are said to be about 17.8 percent in high-income countries and about 16.5 percent in middle- and low-income countries.

Apparently, there is not enough money to solve the problem of diagnosis and treatment of this disease, including in vitro fertilization and other reproductive technologies for the treatment of infertility. Many people cannot access treatment due to high costs and social stigma.

In many countries, people mostly finance their own fertility treatments.

People in low-income countries spend more of their income on fertility treatment than people in high-income countries, while high costs hinder access to fertility treatment.

It is also argued that infertility can affect people’s mental and psychosocial well-being, causing severe suffering, stigma and financial hardship.

While providing data on the high global prevalence of infertility, the report highlights the continuing lack of data in many countries and some regions.

It is argued that national data disaggregated by age and cause can be useful in determining infertility, determining who needs fertility treatment, and how risks can be reduced.

“We need to expand access to fertility treatment”

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, whose views are included in the report, said that infertility affects everyone without exception.

“The proportion of those who suffer from infertility shows that access to fertility treatment should be expanded and that this issue should no longer be left out of research and health policy. So there can be safe, effective and affordable ways to become parents.” used phrases.
