VARTA launches online gallery

VARTA is excited to announce that its 'Donor conception: towards openness' exhibition, held at Melbourne's City Library Gallery in June, has now been permanently housed on the VARTA website.

Just as the original exhibition was the first of its kind, so too is this online gallery – a unique collection of art, photography, writing, artefacts and memorabilia provided by people whose lives have been touched by donor conception.

Victorian sperm donor numbers fallen by almost a quarter in past year

The supply of sperm donors in Victoria has dropped by 23 per cent over the past financial year, according to the Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority's (VARTA's) Annual Report 2014. There were only 343 sperm donors at the start of 2013-14 compared to 445 in the previous year.

At the same time, the increase in demand for donor sperm from single women and those in same-sex relationships has resulted in demand outstripping supply in the state, with the use of donor insemination almost doubling between 2013-14 and 2012-13.
