National Infertility Awareness Campaign
The National Infertility Awareness Campaign (NIAC), is an umbrella body which has the support of a wide variety of stakeholders in the field of infertility including professional bodies and patient support groups.
For more than 20 years, NIAC has campaigned for people to have equal access, as appropriate, to a full range of NHS investigations and treatments for infertility. Unfortunately, however, the availability of treatment on the NHS is varied throughout the UK and details of the current situation are on the NHS Funding for Fertility section of our website. If you are experiencing difficulties accessing NHS treatment use the template letters on that section to write to your local provider and your MP to appeal and highlight the unfairness of current access.
Since its establishment, NIAC has also pushed for recognition of the psychological effects of infertility, which if left untreated, can cause unnecessary and long-lasting harm to a people’s mental and general wellbeing.
NIAC is funded through grants from Ferring Pharmaceuticals Ltd and Merck Serono Pharmaceuticals. Its activities are directed by the NIAC Committee, with strategic advice and administrative assistance from Decideum Ltd. Non-commercial interests enjoy a significant majority on the NIAC Committee.
