Mission and Vision
History of Pre-Conception Health Special Interest Group
The first business meeting of the Pre-Conception Health Special Interest Group (PCH-SIG) attended by 22 keen individuals was held at the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA) annual conference in Perth, Australia on 26th of October, 2009. We identified a number of aims for the group including:
- Identification of models of care to address and assess lifestyle factors in fertility clinics across Australia: Development and synthesis of existing pre-conception guidelines for Australian populations – both general and specific to infertility
- Facilitating collaborative research
- Development of a national database of projects commensurate with the PCH-SIG mission.
