An International Consultation

Sama is organizing an International Consultation that will look into the issues of Commercialization of Assisted Reproductive Technologies and its Ethical implications. The Consultation aims to bring together activists/scholars and researchers from different parts of the world particularly from regions that are experiencing the implications of these technologies.

Through this consultation, we intend to:

  • Share and exchange information emanating from activism, research, practices, policies and regulatory mechanisms gathered from the ground from across the world and thereby enable the development of a framework for ethical norms and regulations;
  • Further the emerging debates on ‘new’ reproductive and genetic technologies in the context of public health and policy, research, ethics and practic;
  • Comprehend the advancements and debates around scientific research on infertility care, stem cells and cloning and examine the research priorities in the context of access to basic health care;
  • Locate the discussions and debate on ARTs within the framework of women’s health, rights and social justice;

Participation is only by invitation from Sama.
