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.

 

Our aim for this inaugural event is for Infertility to once again be in the spotlight and to continue to break down the stigma attached to the disease, through educating the public.
