Abstract

Community interest following IVF has been stimulated by the extensive media coverage of pregnancies resulting from the use of this technique to treat human infertility. However, only a small number of fertility research teams have reported consistent success. This chapter reviews the requirements needed to establish an IVF and ET programme. Concern has been expressed at the resources necessary due to the complexity of the various techniques.
