The Australian and New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association (ANZICA) was formed in Canberra in 1989 by a group of 10 infertility counsellors, social workers and psychologists attending the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA) annual meeting.

Since then, ANZICA membership has expanded to include almost 100 members from all States and Territories of Australia and across New Zealand and is the largest professional association for infertility counsellors .

ANZICA fulfills an important role in representing the views of infertility counselors both to the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC), The Fertility Society of Australia and the New Zealand Infertility Society. It is important that counsellors have a voice in the field of Reproductive Technology both as advocates for the clients and for the potential unborn child.
