Hyderabad 19th April 2020: Amid COVID – 19 lockdown period Oasis Fertility has committed to hosting the National Infertility Awareness Week 2020 starting from 19th to 25th April 2020 with so many live events canceled because of COVID 19, people with infertility and those struggling to build a family need support more than ever. At Oasis we truly care about our patients and also would like to reach out to millions of people who always cherished to start a wonderful bond called family.
As we are aware that infertility doesn’t discriminate any caste, race, religion, sexuality or economic status, it is almost a pandemic which most couples are currently going through.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that one in every 4 couples in developing nations is affected by infertility. India has nearly 27.5 million infertile couples, and out of which only 1% of the couple come forward to get themselves treated. This is primarily because of the low awareness levels and the myth that the success rate in IVF/Fertility treatment is very low.
The total fertility rate, which is the number of children who would be born per woman if she were to pass through the childbearing years bearing children according to a current schedule of age-specific fertility rates, has declined from 3.9 in the 1990s to 2.3 in 2013. It is estimated that while female factor accounts for 40-50% of infertility among couples, infertility attributable to male factors is on the rise and constitutes 35-40%.
The entire objective of hosting National Infertility Awareness Week by Oasis Fertility begins as a part of a national movement that unites millions of Indians who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that come in the way of building families.
