WeCanConceive: India's first and largest infertility support ecosystem
Infertility rate in India is 10 to 14 per cent where 1 out of 6 couples are affected
Commemorating the Sexual & Reproductive Health Day 2021, WeCanConceive, a public awareness initiative and first-of-its-kind infertility support ecosystem was launched in Pune. This platform will provide information about infertility awareness and support for couples having difficulties with infertility, challenges with conception.
This sexual and reproductive health awareness ecosystem brings together a global compendium of care givers, renowned fertility experts, media partners, health influencers and social enterprises.
Speaking at the launch of the initiative Oasis Fertility COO Sudhaker Jadhav explained that there are several couples out there who go through the challenges of infertility all by themselves and have a tough time finding the right solutions and support.
“The idea of #WeCanConceive is to be able to bring all the stakeholders together and provide an ecosystem for those dealing with infertility all of the help at one place,” he said.
“Couples who experience infertility often feel isolated and have to go through many barriers when trying to build their family. The silence and stigma that sometimes surrounds infertility topics or diagnoses is what we aim to eliminate together,” added Oasis Fertility Clinical Head and Fertility Specialist, Dr Nilesh Balkawade.
The objectives of the initiative would be to inform and inspire couples, improve awareness on sexual and productive health and imbue a sense of empowerment. This will be done by offering safe, affordable and high quality assistive reproductive technologies, while creating an environment of positivity and hope for improving infertility outcomes.
