Fertility preservation requires close coordination between reproductive medicine specialists, reproductive biologists and oncologists in various disciplines. Therefore, it is inevitable that fertility-preservation activities should organize themselves into a network structure both as a medical-logistic network and as a professional medical society. The necessary network structures can differ significantly at regional, national and international levels, as the size of the regions to be integrated and the local cultural and geographical conditions, as well as the political conditions, are very different. To address these issues, this chapter aims to point out the basic importance and the chances, but also the difficulties of fertility-protection networks.
