History

It was founded in 1953 by José Botella Llusiá as the Sociedad Española para el Estudio de la Esterilidad (Spanish Society for the Study of Sterility) and became the Sociedad Española de Fertilidad (SEF) (Spanish Fertility Society) in 1978.

From its creation, it was affiliated with the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS) which aims to stimulate research and disseminate its results in the field of reproduction and fertility worldwide.

In 2009, it signed an agreement with the Spanish Ministry of Health and Social Policy (Ministerio de Sanidad y Política Social de España) about the transfer and management of data from the Assisted Reproduction Technologies Registry established in 1990.

Every two years, it organizes its National Congress.

Objectives of the project

The SEF is a scientific society whose objective is to promote fertility studies and encourage their application to social problems related to fertility.

It also collaborates with the Government and other entities, at their request, on reproductive health issues and disseminates related knowledge.

Finally, it establishes and grants accreditations to Spanish professionals or fertility centres that meet the requirements of quality of care and operation.
