Abstract

Description

This paper presents key findings from the first major study of the provision of infertility services to South Asian communities in the UK. Findings demonstrate that infertility services need to be developed in order to provide culturally competent care to diverse patient populations. The paper suggests that there is little evidence of the use of data on ethnic or religious background in infertility clinics. Recommendations for policy and practice are proposed.
