Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 7 Mag 2019

More than 1,700 fertility specialists from 50 countries are attending the 9th Congress of the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE 2019) in Hong Kong to explore the latest advances in scientific research and clinical care of people experiencing infertility.It is one of the most influential meetings on assisted reproduction ever presented in the Asia Pacific region that is home to about 60 per cent of the world’s population.ASPIRE President, Professor Budi Wiweko, a leader in the advancement of IVF and associated technologies in the region, said outcomes from the congress would empower the region and help shape the future of assisted conception throughout the world.
People attending the congress at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre include scientists, clinicians, embryologists, nurses and fertility counsellors to discuss and dissect future aspects of reproductive medicine.One in six couples throughout the world experience infertility, which is defined as the failure to conceive after a year of unprotected intercourse, or the inability to carry pregnancies to a live birth. The causes of infertility are equally shared between male and female partners.The World Health Organisation has forecast that infertility will become the third most serious condition after cancer and cardiovascular diseases in the 21st century.
Delegates at the ASPIRE 2019 Congress have come from across the Asia Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, Middle East, India, Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, North America, South America and Canada.Professor Wiweko said ASPIRE’s widening scientific exchange with leaders in reproductive medicine in other countries would be vital in addressing a disturbing decline in fertility rates across the world, and especially in the Asia Pacific region.
There are many complex factors contributing to this trend including couples marrying later in life, growing urbanisation and associated stress levels, work pressures and environmental conditions.
