Eslam Hamdy: We successfully executed two sessions of Merck Saudi Fertility ART Forum in both Riyadh and Jeddah

Eslam Hamdy, Franchise Manager at Merck, Saudi Arabia shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Did you know that according to a questionnaire-based study published, Jan. 2024, with participation of 89 Oncologists in Saudi Arabia resulted in below facts :

1- 74.2% of participants has no access to fertility specialists to provide counseling about fertility preservation for patients undergoing Chemotherapy!

2- 38.2 % of participants has never referred these patients to fertility specialist!

Last week, we successfully executed two sessions of Merck Saudi Fertility ART Forum in both Riyadh and Jeddah. The event brought together eminent infertility consultants in Saudi Arabia to discuss and address important topics related to fertility.

During the forum, we focused on two key areas. The first topic centered around the management of advanced maternal age patients with a comprehensive talk by Dr.Alessandro Conforti , Virtually from Rome. With an increasing number of women choosing to start a family later in life, it is crucial to understand and address the unique challenges faced by these individuals. Our consultants shared valuable insights and strategies to enhance the success rates for this patient group.

The second topic revolved around fertility preservation in cancer patients. Dr.Faisal Azam revealed crucial data about the numbers of patients undergoing Chemotherapy who lacks the proper knowledge and consultation about their future of parenthood. This oversight denies these patients the opportunity to preserve their fertility and fulfill their dreams of parenthood. Recognizing this gap, we emphasized the importance of establishing a strong connection between IVF consultants and oncologists. By bridging this gap, we can ensure that more patients have the opportunity to conceive even after undergoing chemotherapy.

At Merck, we are committed to the well-being of our patients and understand the profound impact that infertility can have on their lives. Through events like Merck Saudi Fertility ART Forum, we aim to raise awareness, share knowledge, and foster collaboration among healthcare professionals to help more individuals achieve the dream of parenthood.

Thanks Dr.Faisal Azam for the amazing talk and hammering on such important topic and for being keen on the patients future and wellbeing.

I’d like to THANK all Merck Saudi Fertility team for their efforts during the events and its preparation to make it happen in such engaging and successful way!”
