The Romanian members were also very active on social media with campaigns I am 1 in 5” and the anti-stigma action „IVF mum and proud of it”, and also organised on Facebook a live Q&A session for patients.

The European Fertility Week finished in Romania with ‘WE WANT CHILDREN’ meetings of SOS Infertilitatea members with friends and sympathizers in Bucharest and Iasi, discussing and advising on fertility/infertility, assisted reproductive technology and adoption.

UK: very moving #HiddenFaces pictures and videos

Posted by Fertility Europe | 0 comentarii

National Fertility Awareness Week in UK  is so successful: so many press mentions and people, clinics, sister organisations, bloggers and others talking, tweeting and sharing info about the awareness week, fertility impact survey, the #HiddenFaces campaign, with its incredible pics, posters and videos, the #fertilityin5 social media campaign, fertility myths and five ages of female fertility infographics.

Their very moving #HiddenFaces pictures and 12 videos featuring a range of fertility issues and media volunteers: women, men and couples, raised awareness of the most difficult faces of infertility like failed treatments or decision about using a donor.

The #fertilityin5 encouraged to share emotions and experience in 5 words.

Facebook reached peak 60,156; from 12,178 the week before NFAW and Twitter followers increased by 126 followers: from 8,586 to 8,712 over the two week period.

Awareness campaign – European Fertility Week

Posted by Fertility Europe | 0 comentarii

First edition of European Fertility Week.

In Europe, for one in five fertility is an issue.

Fertility Europe, the association of European patient organizations and associations involved with fertility / infertility issues, is pleased to announce the first edition of European Fertility Week, taking place between 31st October and 6th November 2016.

twitter-header-final-profile

During the European Fertility Week, most of the Fertility Europe member organizations, will organize national campaigns (on online platforms and in real life) to sustain the awareness-raising and advocacy efforts regarding fertility and infertility.

Some of the organizations have already a great experience in organizing such campaigns; however, this year, the difference is brought by the alignment between our national efforts and the actions that will take place simultaneous in many European countries. The campaign will be promoted through a common visual identity and also by using an unitary tool in the social media, under the hashtag #EuropeanFertilityWeek.

All the actions taking place during European Fertility Week will be promoted through the communication channels of Fertility Europe (website, forum, social networks). Afterwards, the whole campaign experience will be summarized into an informational brochure, which will serve as a guideline for sharing experiences and good practices.
