Unraveling the determinants of assisted reproduction service use in reproductive-aged women in Australia with and without chronic disease


There has been a noticeable rise in infertility rates over the past 5 decades. Infertility currently impacts 1 in 6 Australian couples. Women with chronic disease experience a disproportionately higher rate of infertility compared to the general population. There are a number of assisted reproductive technologies available to women struggling with infertility however access to and use of these services is variable throughout the population. Little information exists about these disparities and the underlying reasons within an Australian context. This project aims to address this.
