/ about

National Infertility Awareness Week South Africa (NIAW SA) is an initiative run by IFAASA (Infertility Awareness Association of South Africa) in association with House of Fertility and Hannah You are Not Alone.

 

Our Theme for NIAW2021 is "Infertility & Me" and, this year we have introduced our Average Infertility Patients, Kelly and Bongani, who are allowing us to follow their journey with infertility. We hope that our campaign will be shared across social media, helping the public to be more aware of what their friends and family, who are infertile, go through and how they can support them.
 

**Kelly and Bongani are fictional characters depicting an average infertile couple's journey through infertility. For more information on your own fertility journey, please speak to a Fertility Specialist.
