On July 6, The ReproUnion Fertility Awareness team, in collaboration with Lund University, participated in a very passionate debate at the social and political festival Almedalsveckan at the Swedish island, Gotland. The focus of the debate was on how involuntary infertility has become a public disease and as a result, the human and social costs.
Recently, the Novo Nordisk Foundation found the work from post doc Stine Gry Kristensen and colleagues at the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology at Rigshospitalet interesting enough to make a small video and article which were published at ScienceNews.dk.
The first ReproUnion debate on Folkemødet —with the title of “Let’s Make Babies & Money” followed such questions as why is the decreasing number of fertility a challenge for Europe? How do we secure fertility – now and in the future? How do we get world-class fertility research and treatment?
