The series welcomes research on a wide range of topics relating to IVF and its development over the past decade in low-, middle- and high-income countries including but not limited to:

  •  The burden of infertility in low-income-countries and how IVF can contribute to solve this problem
  •  The most successful current treatment options for IVF in low-, middle- and high-income countries
  •  Additional approaches to achieving fertilisation in these countries
  •  Current unresolved issues in IVF
  •  Potential improvements of the current IVF approach in the future

Aims & scope

Reproductive Health is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal focusing on all aspects of human reproduction.

Reproductive health is defined as a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in all matters relating to the reproductive system, at all stages of life. Good reproductive health implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe sex life, the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when, and how often to do so. Men and women should be informed about and have access to safe, effective, affordable, and acceptable methods of family planning of their choice, and the right to appropriate health-care services that enable women to safely go through pregnancy and childbirth. Reproductive Health has a particular interest on the impact changes in reproductive health have globally, and therefore encourages submissions from researchers based in low- and middle-income countries.
