Reproductive Health Technologies

As medical technology advances, ethical questions and conflicts inevitably arise, affecting policymakers, practitioners and individuals. From assisted reproduction to embryonic gene modification, the world faces a range of ethical dilemmas that did not exist during the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994. This session will describe various sexual and reproductive health advancements and the ethical and social implications of implementing these technologies. Expect a moderated discussion addressing how these technologies relate to reproductive autonomy, how they advance justice, and how they uphold the core ethical principle of “do no harm”. This event will be convened by The Center for Health, Ethics and Social Policy and The Center for Biotechnology and Global Health Policy, University of California at Irvine, and PSI.
