The impact of infertility: Why ART should be a higher priority for women in the global South

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Cancer is typically associated with countries in the global North 1 rather than the global South. This is in part because cancer is often portrayed as a disease of late middle to old age and the global North has a larger percentage of this particular demographic than the global South. Yet, cancer is the third leading non-communicable cause of death in developing countries [1].
