Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) have solved the problem of infertility in less than half a century, but the birth rate has not exceeded 5%. At the same time, new problems arose, caused not by medical, but by organizational and social specifics: in Russia in 2016, a third more IVF cycles were performed than infertility was detected. "Extra" cycles are implemented in commercial ART programs, most often in surrogacy. The internationalization of the ART market leads to the fact that the anonymity of foreign donors, the high cost of donor material and not full compliance with selection standards do not allow for genetic analysis, which results in the birth of a sick child. We need to find new organizational solutions that suit both reproductive clinics and patients.
