IFFS Response:
First Baby born following uterus transplantation from deceased donor

The IFFS welcomes this announcement which is an anticipated evolution from live donors with clear advantages and the prospect of increasing supply for women with hitherto untreatable infertility. Uterine transplantation is a novel technique and should be regarded as experimental. As with all medical developments, wider adoption requires IRB approval with appropriate safeguards including adherence to authoritative guidelines, verification of relevant personnel and detailed transparent reporting of outcomes.

WHO Global health emergency alert: zika virus



Click HERE for the WHO Zika Strategic Response plan


The Zika virus outbreak has been declared a global health emergency by WHO. Its risk profile has changed from a mild threat to one with serious consequences. There is now scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome. Given the implications of Zika infection in reproductive health the IFFS has a key role in disseminating information to its stakeholders to support the global effort in minimizing the risk of this infection.
