Message from CEO of Merck Foundation, Senator Rasha Kelej, on the announcement of The Merck Foundation Fertility Awareness Media Kit



Dear media partners and Merck Foundation Alumni.

"I’d like to share with you Merck Foundation Fertility Awareness Media Kit about raising awareness about Infertility Causes & Prevention, Male Infertility, and Breaking the Stigma of Infertility.

This is an excellent resource for your knowledge to break the silence and be the voice of the voiceless to sensitize your respective communities and be an advocate to empower infertile women through access to information, health, and change of mindset.

We have also created public awareness materials, children's storybooks, local songs and launched media Technician, fashion, film, and songs awards as you all know. We have also supported many childless and infertile women by establishing small businesses for them to enable them to be independent. Furthermore across 34 countries, we have provided clinical training to more than 180 doctors to be the first fertility specialists and embryologists in their countries and provided one-year online diploma and two-year master degree in sexual and reproductive medicines from the University of South Wales, UK for more than 150 doctors with the aim to improve women health and fertility care in Africa and Asia.

Let’s work together to break the stigma around Infertility and Infertile women and improve women's health in general. As,
 It takes both a woman and a man to have a child.
Women are more than Mothers
Men are more than Fathers
Fertility is a shared responsibility. 

Enjoy reading the Merck Foundation Fertility Awareness Media Training Kit. -
