Despite the high population rates in developing countries, one in three couples are affected with infertility. The main causes of infertility in Africa are tubal occlusion and male factor due to sexually transmitted infections, postabortal and postpartum sepsis. Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) is often the only solution for these couples which are prohibitively expensive and sparsely available. This paper discusses alternative strategies to modify stimulation protocols and laboratory methods to make ART more affordable in low resource settings and public institutions.
