The phenomenon of “reproductive tourism” has now become of undeniable global significance and demands rigorous academic engagement.  Greece is considered one of the most ideal destinations for a woman to conceive a child following assisted reproductive techniques.

It is estimated that some 1,000 women travel to Greece every year to seek information in regards to Greece’s high success rates per IVF (in vitro fertilization) attempt. These women usually combine their trip with a vacation either to Athens or the Greek islands.

CNN has characterized Greece as an “ideal destination for reproductive tourism.”

* Reproductive tourism is a type of medical tourism in which patients travel to other states or countries seeking fertility treatments in various forms because those treatments aren’t available to them in their own state or country for any number of reasons.
