By asking the tough questions about infertility, we not only have an opportunity to raise awareness about this disease, but also to motivate all who are touched by infertility to commit to the cause.

RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April 24 through April 30, 2016. The movement brings together millions of women and men living with infertility, healthcare, mental health and adoption professionals, and lawmakers to raise awareness about the disease.

RESOLVE works to improve the lives of women and men living with infertility. One in eight U.S. couples of childbearing age is unable to get pregnant or sustain a pregnancy. RESOLVE addresses this public health issue by providing community to these women and men, connecting them with others who can help, empowering them to find resolution, and giving voice to their demands for greater access to all family building options.

“The theme of National Infertility Awareness Week® is ‘Start Asking,’ and RESOLVE is honored to bring together the entire infertility community to call attention to this disease,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “By asking the tough questions about infertility, we not only have an opportunity to raise awareness about this disease, but also to motivate all who are touched by infertility to commit to the cause.”

RESOLVE’s National Infertility Awareness Week 2016 is supported by its NIAW Partners: ARC Fertility, EMD Serono, Ferring Pharmaceuticals, Fertility Centers of Illinois, First Response, HAVEABABY, IntegraMed, Merck and OvaScience.

RESOLVE can provide experts for interviews on all aspects of infertility, as well as personal patient stories from women and men living with infertility. For inquiries about RESOLVE’s resources, contact Andy Schwarz at aschwarz(at)resolve(dot)org.

Each year the infertility community comes together for one week to focus on ensuring that people trying to conceive know the guidelines for seeing a specialist when they are trying to conceive; enhancing public understanding that infertility is a disease that needs and deserves attention; and educating legislators about the disease of infertility and how it impacts people in their state. In 2010 NIAW became the only federally recognized health observance for infertility by the Department of Health and Human Services. For more information, visit http://www.resolve.org/niaw.
