About

VARTA Consumer Advisory Group

Join our Consumer Advisory Group – Your voice matters!

People who are considering treatment, experiencing it, or who have gone through it are in the best position to shape VARTA’s work. So, too, are people who have been born as a result of fertility treatment. This includes men, women, and non-binary people who are single or in a relationship. VARTA is interested in everybody's opinion, regardless of your circumstances. Your feedback, ideas and opinions on various projects and initiatives will help VARTA provide information that is relevant for you and others affected by assisted reproductive treatment. It will also help VARTA support clinics to aim for the highest quality of care.

How to get involved

People who join the consumer advisory group will get occasional emails with relevant opportunities to help VARTA with its work. If you join, you will receive opportunities to provide feedback on matters that are relevant to you (based on your choice of topics), as well as updates and reports on projects you participated in.
