Welcome to the IICO

IICO is short for the International Infertility Counseling Organisation. IICO is the international umbrella organization for national fertility counseling organisations.

Our goal is to bring together professional organizations and individual practitioners in infertility counseling worldwide in order to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience and in order to further the development of infertility counseling. There are currently over 10 national organizations and we strive to hold a work-shop every two years in conjunction with international conferences.
