For over forty years, assisted reproductive technology (ART) has helped millions of patients around the world to overcome infertility. Careful monitoring of ART treatments and their outcomes is vital to maintain the remarkable pace of change in science and technology, whilst minimizing potential risks to infertility patients, and their children. Written by forty-five authors from twenty countries around the world, this book represents a global effort to document the history of assisted reproductive technology surveillance, and its dynamic challenges across the world. Comprehensive in its approach, the text details best practices in collecting and using ART surveillance data to monitor treatment effectiveness and safety, improve quality of care, develop health policy, and provide accurate information to infertility patients, worldwide.

• Provides a comprehensive, detailed approach to best practices in ART, by leading experts
• Features sections on safe monitoring of treatments, improving quality of care and developing health policies, across continents
• Written by forty-five authors from twenty countries around the world, this book represents a global effort to document the forty-year history of assisted reproductive technology surveillance
