Patients’ Rights Charter

AccessAustralia is a signatory to the Patients’ Rights Charter developed by the iCSi patient leader network and the ESHRE Patients’ Leader Forum.  The  joint Charter brings a patients’ perspective to global principles for assisted conception and infertility.

Signatories to the Charter will use this document in their negotiations with governments to argue for greater equity of access to quality, affordable treatment. The process to create the Charter has taken more than three years to give the 39 countries who were invited to give input, ample time to discuss key principles for their cultures and national needs.

Founding signatories to the charter include 32 patients’ associations from 25 countries in four world regions.
