Discussion paper

The HCC is currently conducting an inquiry into IVF and Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) health services.

The inquiry will include wide-ranging consultation and community engagement with members of the public who have utilised ART and/or IVF services, along with providers of those services.

We’re in the process of developing a discussion paper, which will address a series of questions about the inquiry and invite submissions from ART and IVF clients (including third-party submissions from family members or friends) and from service providers. We will ensure absolute anonymity of any person’s identity if they express their desire to remain confidential.

As soon as available, the discussion paper will be presented on this webpage.

In the meantime, anyone seeking more information about the inquiry, or about making a submission, is invited to call the HCC on 1300 582 113.

We will deliver a final report to the Victorian Government following the conclusion of the inquiry, which the Minister for Health referred to the HCC earlier this month under section 103 of the Health Complaints Act 2016.
