Overview

Indonesia as one of the most populous country in the world has been facing double burden health problems. In addition to this, there has been an issue in area of infertility. This becomes a major concern due to the rates and the real numbers of Indonesians affected as well as the cultural importance of childlessness among Indonesian families. Infertility can be caused by female factors, male factors or both. Based on the data collected from Indonesia’s Demographic Health Survey in 2002, the WHO has estimated that the female infertility rate (both primary and secondary infertility) to be 22.3% of married women between the ages of 15 and 45. In Indonesia, the most conservative rates is between 10% and 15% of the reproductive aged population. Therefore,  since  there  are  approximately  39.8  million  Indonesian women of childbearing age, there will be around 4 million women experiencing infertility. Infertility affects men and women equally. Male factor infertility is involved in approximately 50% of infertile couples, and in 30% of the cases, an abnormality is discovered solely in the man. Unfortunately,  only  very  limited  number  of  reproductive  couples experiencing infertility have accessed proper health facilities. One of the strategies to increase the health service access for infertility is to improve the referral system for infertility care and strengthening the links between general practitioners and infertility providers. Medical students as future general practitioners therefore should understand the basics of infertility management and recognise their future role in infertility management.

 

This one day course aims to enable participants to recognise the magnitude  of  infertility  problems  in  Indonesia,  to  decribe  basic principles of subfertility, to recognise the role of general practitioners in subfertility management and to describe the cultural, psychological and caring issues in subfertility management.

Learning objectives

After attending this live educational course, participants will be able to:

  • Discern the nature and pathophysiology of subfertility
  • Understand the recent development of subfertility management
  • Demonstrate the appropriate referral system for subfertility cases
  • Explain the cultural, psychological and caring aspects related to subfertility management
  • Describe the model of early stage counselling of couples with sub- fertility problem
  • Understand the social dimension of women infertility and address gender discrimination for infertile women in the realm of fertility care and wider society.
