On behalf of the organizing committee. It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to participate in the 22nd annual congress ISAR 2017, under the auspicies of Indian Society for Assisted Reproduction in collaboration with its Haryana State Chapter.
Assisted Reproductive techniques are growing at a fast pace all over the world and the reason is tremendous advancements in each technology adopted by clinicians and embryologists for treating infertility. At the same time we can not ignore the fact that the management of infertility is still a dilemma for many of us working at the grass root levels.
This congress has been specially designed around its theme of "Illuminating fertility treatments - Basics and Beyond". The participants shall be provided with an overview of Basics of Reproductive science as well as technology in order to enhance their clinical skills while confronting couples with fertility related issues. Simultaneously the recent developments in the field of Assisted reproduction shall be highlighted. Focus would be to create awareness regarding safe and effective ART as well as incorporate evidence into clinical practice.
In natural conceptions, Life in womb is the origin of health and disease but in ART health of gametes is the origin of adult health. Experts will deliver special lectures to address this important topic. Objective is to initiate a sense of responsibility towards the babies being created through IVF.
Since ART as of today is becoming a provider for third party reproduction, egg banking, three parent IVF it is our moral duty to discuss medicolegal issues accompanying these complex relationships through structured workshops.
Experts in their respective fields have designed hands on training modules in Embryology, Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy and Ultrasound which will help the participants improve their skills in day to day practice.
Indian Society for Assisted Reproduction has always been on the forefront in spreading awareness among public as well as clinicians regarding the increasing number of childless couples in India. Apart from training doctors through continued medical education, our members have developed low cost ivf programmes for below poverty line couples in our country. The Society has also actively pursued the National cause of Saving the girl child and has gained tremendous acknowledgement on the Global Platform.
I am sure that through this congress we shall help bring India on the world map for its excellence in this unique field of Assisted reproduction.
