The Health Complaints Commissioner (HCC) is currently conducting an Inquiry into Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) practices in Victoria.
The Inquiry will include wide-ranging consultation and community engagement with members of the public who have utilised ART and/or other fertility treatment services, along with providers of those services.
On 25 June 2019 we released a discussion paper, which addresses a series of questions about the Inquiry and invited submissions. We received more than 120 submissions and held public consultation sessions in September to further inform the Inquiry.
Submissions to the Inquiry are now closed.
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.
