The National Association of Involuntary Childlessness™ (NAIC) is a comprehensive research and advocacy group that focuses specifically on research studies in infertility and female childlessness. At NAIC, research is the backbone of what we do. From causes and links to infertility to effects of involuntary childlessness, our researchers are among the best in their field. Research is more than just a career — it’s a passion. We know medical breakthroughs occur at the intersection of different scientific disciplines. Our disruptive approach to reproductive health has given birth to groundbreaking discoveries that assist the larger scientific community in improving the overall health of women.
More than 22 million women are unable to naturally conceive or carry a child to term. One in five women will remain childless and for 90% of them, it was not by choice. Addressing under-researched issues related to infertility in women is a central part of the NAIC mission.
