On behalf of the executive committee, we are greatly honored and pleased to welcome you to attend the 24th Annual Meeting of the Middle East Fertility Society (MEFS) that will be held from September 28-30, 2017 in Grand Hyatt Dubai, UAE.
This year’s conference promises to be an exciting and rewarding one. A panel of highly distinguished international and local faculty speakers will offer the latest updates on the fields of human reproduction, fertility and infertility treatment, in addition to the high-standard presentations and lectures.
The MEFS annual meeting has traditionally become the meeting point where all fertility specialists across the Middle East find the opportunity to exchange scientific information, renew social bonds, strengthen national solidarity, and consolidate cultural heritage.
The host city, Dubai, is one of the most attractive touristic cities in the world, offering numerous attractions. You need not to be a professional diver to enjoy the city. there is an abundance of history to explore, a traditional cuisine to enjoy, an eyeful of breathtaking architecture here, and a good-natured haggle over a carpet there.
We offer you our warmest welcome and we look forward to count you among the conference participants, and I encourage you to register as soon as possible and make plans to join your colleagues and friends in Dubai to make the meeting a wonderful and memorable event.

Dear Friends and Colleagues
The success of ESHRE is based on its membership; it is vital that the Society adapts to its members’ needs. Its members are ESHRE’s raison d’être.
During my mandate as ESHRE Chairman, I have aimed to ensure that members can be heard and that the work being done at all levels in ESHRE corresponds to what our members are expecting. With this in mind, ESHRE in 2016 carried out a survey among its membership. The results of the survey showed that the main reason for members to join the Society was to keep up to date with new information in the eld of reproductive science and medicine and to have access to the ESHRE educational resources. I believe that the initiatives we undertook during the past year have helped ful l these expectations. If I were to highlight only one, it would be the e-learning platform of ESHRE, the “e-Campus”. The platform was launched at the Annual Meeting in Helsinki 2016. It is a unique collection of the knowledge shared at ESHRE Campus events since 2015. I would like to encourage you to make use of this wealth of knowledge. In this annual report you can nd out more of who we are and what we have been doing throughout 2016.
Finally, let me thank the people who make the spirit of ESHRE a reality: the committees, the staff, and above all the members. Even if a membership survey is not organised every year, your feedback is precious and inspires the daily work of Central Of ce staff and the decisions made at the Executive Committee. Never hesitate to be in touch.
