ABOUT US

OUR HISTORY

The society was inaugurated as Nigerian Fertility Society, in 1992. It operated under this name for years, during which it organized several seminars, conferences, at times with societies of similar interest.

Prof. Osato Giwa-Osagie and Prof. Oladapo Ashiru, along with Dr. John Esangbedo, Prof. Bomi Ogedengbe, Mrs Bobo Kayode, Prof. Akande Ebenezer, Prof. Oladapo Ladipo, Dr. Ibrahim Wada, along with others, have been at the forefront of this society, making it visible and heard, within and outside the country.

In this regard, Nigerian Fertility Society, (NFS), has consistently been involved with the International Federation of Fertility Societies, (IFFS) and the annual dues for the society being paid regularly, to ensure continuous involvement and participation with the IFFS. Several efforts were made to get this name, NFS, registered, but were unsuccessful. Therefore, in 2010, the name Association for Fertility and Reproductive Health, (AFRH) was finally accepted and registered, by the Corporate Affairs Commission.

In November 2011, the association had a National meeting, and National executives were elected, to serve in various capacities, to get the Association activities started off, with a formal structure.

The society since then has organized international conferences, in November 2005 in Lagos, with full participation of the IFFS, and UK Fertility Registry, and several participants and delegates from Sub Saharan Africa in full participation. Similarly, in September 2013, Abuja, a similar conference was organized, with participants, from the USA, UK, in full participation. AFRH Nigeria

AFRH is changing the way fertility companies work.
