Several pocket meetings were done by the different groups with the TWGs. Withthe enthusiam and support shown by its dedicated members, we will be able to present the output in June among the stakeholders and due for release during the Annual Convention in October.

This CPG on Infertility will benefit primarily the members and fellows in training in the management of infertility. Likewise, this will guide the general OB-GYN and residents in the proper evaluation and treatment of infertility and as towhen to refer to the specialists. The printing of the CPGs will be sponsored solely by MSD-Organon and we would like to thank them for their unwavering support for this project.
