The conference and the study had a clear focus: Reduced fertility is a disease! Reduced fertility should be acknowledged as a disease just like diabetes.

Søren Ziebe, Professor at The Fertility Clinic at Rigshospitalet, participated in the panel discussion at the conference. His key messaged was not to be misunderstood: Together, we must spread the word about fertility awareness.
