Thank you for sharing your views and experiences about the way assisted reproductive treatment (ART) is provided in Victoria.
Assisted reproductive treatment refers to a wide range of treatments used to help people to have a child. This includes treatments like ovulation induction, artificial insemination and IVF. It also includes the use of donors and surrogates.
The landmark Gorton review of assisted reproductive treatment, initiated by the Victorian Government in April 2018, has concluded.
The Final Report of the Independent Review of Assisted Reproductive Treatment was informed by extensive consultations with many stakeholders involved in or impacted by assisted reproductive treatment, who have taken the time to share their experiences. The Victorian Government has released the final report (available below) and is carefully considering the report’s key findings and wide ranging recommendations.
