The survey Swiss (CH) Assisted Reproduction Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) is being carried out as part of the research project Human Reproduction Reloaded | H2R (www.humanreproduction.uzh.ch) at the University of Zurich.
The aim is to gain insights into attitudes towards and knowledge about fertility, images of the family and family planning in Switzerland. The rapid developments in reproductive medicine raise new questions for both individuals and society. At the same, there is as yet very little information about how these medical and technological advances are perceived and used by the population.
The aim of the CHARLS panel survey is to help critically examine the social, ethical and legal effects of new methods in reproductive medicine, with regard to their potential, risks and limitations. What do you think?
