Abstract

This is the first survey on Assisted Reproductive Technologies of Asian and African participants. There have been limited surveys of this nature in Asian and African countries, e.g. Suzuki et al. (1985). However, it must be realised that in vitro fertilization (IVF) in Asia (east of Israel) only began in 1982, with the first birth in May 1983 (Ng et al., 1984). Since then, there has been a slow increase in the number of centres in Asia involved in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), with the largest numbers in Japan (see below).
