Take part in a video campaign to petition the medical aids for cover

Would you be willing to do a short video clip, answering a few questions about your journey with Infertility and explaining why you feel that the medical aids should cover treatment, for a recognised disease ie: Infertility?

If yes, please email saskia@ifaasa.co.za for more information.

UPDATE: We are currently in the process of getting funding, so we can make this video a professionally edited/shot one, which will reach even more people. We have a celebrity couple on board too. Keep an eye on our FB page for more developments!

    I would have loved to do this was it in writing, I’ll have to pass as I am super camera shy. Conceived via ivf on Christmas last year.

    Yes, medical aid refused to pay for egg harvesting. Reason for egg harvesting is due to cancer diagnosis

    Good evening
    We would like to participate in the video. My husband needs a testosterone injection every 10 weeks and the medical aid doesn’t see it as chronic.

    We already pay thousands of Rands per year for medical aid, while, as a healthy person, I barely use all the benefits. It would definitely help prevent further debt if medical aids would cover infertility treatment. Infertility is also (for most of the time) not a preventable disease, while other diseases that are quite preventable are covered.
