At present, very little is known about the extent and outcomes of ART in Africa.
ANARA is a research network and registry. ANARA is led and coordinated by Silke Dyer (Professor, FCOG, PhD; South Africa) together with representatives from participating African countries. The registry is maintained by a small operational team that safeguards the integrity of the data. ANARA strictly protects the anonymity of patients and will never disclose data from individual ART centres.
ANARA respects and secures data ownership: ART centres own their own data, countries own their country data, and ANARA owns the continental data. ANARA has been endorsed by regional and national fertility organisations and received developmental assistance from the Latin American Registry for ART (LARA) and the International Committee Monitoring ART (ICMART).
