We encourage and facilitate the initiative of the Russian Association of Human Reproduction
The July 25 is approaching - the 40th anniversary of the birth of Louise Brown - the world's first child from a vial. This is an important event for all specialists working in the field of assisted reproductive technologies. At the XXVII conference of the Russian Association for Human Reproduction held in St. Petersburg, the decision was made to mark this day as "ART Day".
In January 2018, the RAHR received the official consent of Louise Brown to celebrate the creation of a new field in the modern medicine, which is the treatment of infertility with ART by the day of her birth. In her letter to the RAHR, Louise, who has already become a mother, noted that this day there is an opportunity to express her gratitude not only to Robert Edwards, Patrick Steptoe and all the members of their group, but also to pay tribute to the parents who decided to participate in the experiment with an unpredictable outcome, and all the pioneers of IVF throughout the world. Thanks to them, the population of our planet has increased by almost 10 million.
On June 30, 2018 in Barcelona at the annual conference ESHRE meeting of leaders of national "fertility" organizations - IFFS Board of Directors, decided to support the celebration of the World Day of ART - "World ART Day" on July 25.
On the eve of this event, the RAHR President V.S. Korsak asked to do everything possible to inform the public about this day, about the nowadays achievements of ART in Russia and in the world. To celebrate this day with colleagues. Make a photo of this holiday with congratulations and best wishes to Louise Brown. The head of the RAHR asked to use all available resources to promote modern opportunities to overcome socially significant suffering, such as infertility, to overcome ignorance, prejudice and other barriers to patients in need of treatment, to increase the availability of this type of medical assistance to the population.
