CFAS Endorsement of the Joint Statement on Assisted Reproduction and COVID-19

posted on Jun 5, 2020
The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) is pleased to endorse the Joint Statement on Assisted Reproduction and COVID-19 issued by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) and the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS).
 
The Joint Statement raises several important points. Specifically, that reproduction is an essential human right that exists regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or country of origin, that the initial postponement of all but most urgent fertility care in the early days of the pandemic was necessary, and that the selective resumption of this important healthcare is now warranted.
