This year marks the third annual Fertility Show Africa, following two highly successful previous shows.
Fertility Show Africa is proudly supported by SASREG (South African Society for Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy), IFAASA (Infertility Awareness Association of South Africa) and Ferring Pharmaceuticals.
Cape Fertility is a strong supporter of Fertility Show Africa since its inception; and is also a long-standing supporter of IFAASA, which aims to drive public and industry awareness and understanding of infertility, and to lobby for fair support and change and equal access to public and private sector treatment for infertility patients. We are also a registered member of SASREG, a society of specialists in the field of reproductive medicine, who serve to protect the interests of patients undergoing fertility treatment and of doctors involved in reproductive science and medicine in South Africa.
SASREG distributes news on fertility and sterility related issues; runs conferences, workshops and other academic programmes, with CPD Credits when appropriate; negotiates preferential pricing with the pharmaceutical industry; issues guidelines on controversial aspects of reproductive science; and reviews legislation of the industry.
Cape Fertility is not only registered and accredited with SASREG, we are also a driving force for ethical fertility treatment in South Africa. We are very proud that our chairman, Dr Sulaiman Heylen, serves as the President of SASREG.
