Tokyo has won the bid to host the World
Congress of the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS) in 2025.
The federation listed Japan's long-standing, active
contributions to IFFS's mission, promised sponsorship from many pharmaceutical
companies, and solid congress plans by the Japan Bid Committee, as factors for choosing
Tokyo as the host city.
Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) will also provide financial
support for the congress.
IFFS, which is being held at the Tokyo International Forum,
is expected to bring 4,000 participants, including 1,500 from abroad from more
than 30 countries. The 2025 event also coincides with the 70th anniversary of
the Japan Society for Reproductive Medicine (JSRM), which formed part of the
winning bid committee.
This triennial congress will provide opportunities to advance scientific research and share reproductive medical treatment practices.
IFFS is an international organisation representing National
Fertility Societies since 1968. Currently, it represents more 65 UN
country-specific fertility societies and 50,000 physicians and reproduction
medicine specialists. It exists to campaign for all women and men to have
access to quality fertility and reproductive health care.
