July 12th: General Scheme of the AHR Bill

Assisted Human Reproduction Bill

The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Health today published its report on the General Scheme of the Assisted Human Reproduction Bill. This proposed Bill aims to provide a legal framework for AHR treatments in Ireland and outline provisions for establishment of a national AHR regulatory authority.

As Clinical Director of MFC and an internationally-renowned fertility expert, Professor Mary Wingfield has been a vocal advocate over many years for patient rights in the context of this proposed legislation, and was an invited participant at a meeting of the Joint Committee in February 2018.
