Your Future Fertility is an education project funded by the Scottish government to provide fertility information and education in Scotland.
The aims of the project are:
- to provide fertility information and education in universities, to GPs and in the workplace to ensure that people are better informed on all aspects of fertility issues, including how to take care of their fertility, and how and when it declines
- to raise awareness among young people at university of fertility issues, and to educate them about the issues that can impact fertility, such as sexually transmitted diseases – and lifestyle choices
- to reduce the incidence of fertility problems through improved outcomes in terms of sexual health and lifestyle
- to alleviate the effect on those already affected by this illness through information, self-help and support by providing information events throughout Scotland
During 2016/17 the project was externally evaluated by Graeme Reekie, of Wren and Greyhound Limited. The evaluation asses the project’s outcomes and processes, and made recommendations for its future efficiency and effectiveness. The evaluation was highly positive and the full evaluation can be viewed here.
