Infertility is a global issue, affecting millions of people across all cultures, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds. A recent report by the World Health Organization (WHO) reveals about 17.5% of the adult population — which translates to roughly one in six people — experience infertility issues. Recognized during the month of June, World Infertility Awareness Month was established as an annual global initiative to highlight the issues faced by people around the world and to promote fertility treatment options. Though fertility treatments can prove highly effective, financial, social, and cultural burdens often deter many couples from pursuing fertility treatment options altogether.
Kindbody was founded with a mission to provide equal and accessible fertility and family-building care to all. Kindbody is the trusted fertility and family-building benefits provider for 112 companies and services patients at 32 signature clinics and hundreds of partner clinics in the U.S. Kindbody serves employee members outside of the U.S. through its global benefits offering and global network of fertility clinic partners.
Why Is Infertility Awareness Important?
Raising awareness about infertility is crucial for several reasons. First, it helps dispel common myths and misconceptions about infertility, such as the belief that it is primarily a woman’s issue or that it is linked to lifestyle choices. By promoting accurate information and understanding, we can challenge harmful stereotypes and foster greater empathy and support for those affected by infertility.
Second, increasing awareness about infertility can encourage early intervention and prompt individuals and couples to seek help sooner. Many people delay seeking fertility treatment due to stigma or a lack of knowledge about their options, potentially worsening their chances of success. By promoting open conversations and raising awareness, we can empower people to take control of their fertility journey and access the support they need. Lastly, raising awareness about infertility can help drive policy changes and improvements in access to fertility treatments. By highlighting the universality and impact of infertility, we can advocate for better funding, research, and availability of affordable fertility solutions.
Providing Equal & Accessible Fertility Care For All
Fertility treatments such as IVF can be prohibitively expensive, and lack of insurance coverage or employer-sponsored benefits for these treatments prevents millions of individuals from seeking care. Kindbody’s innovative platform serves patients wherever they are. Offering both virtual and in-person care through an expanded network of signature clinics around the U.S. and a global clinic partner network, Kindbody provides high-quality care to everyone. Kindbody believes that all individuals, couples, and LGBTQ+ people deserve equal access to family-building options and a more seamless path toward parenthood.
