NIAW 2023 is April 23rd - April 29th. As a proud partner of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, the Donor Nexus team is gearing up for another impactful week of raising awareness and removing stigmas surrounding infertility. We hope you’ll join us!
National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) is a movement, founded in 1989 by RESOLVE. It is a yearly observance that takes place at the end of April, aiming to bring awareness and understanding to struggles that people may face when seeking help building their family.
A major goal of NIAW is to also appear in the media and influence lawmakers to enforce policies which will make a difference for the infertility community. NIAW also aims to educate the public about the available treatment options, support resources, and advocacy efforts that can help those affected by infertility.
The 5-Day Challenge takes place during NIAW to encourage people to use their social media platforms to bring awareness to the infertility experience. Check out this page on the NIAW website to learn more about the hashtags/prompts for each day and find social media graphics to use for your posts here!
Advocacy Day is a 1 day virtual event taking place on Tuesday, April 25th. On this day, the family building community comes together to educate Members of Congress about issues and legislation important to our community. Learn more about this event here.
RESOLVE offers a directory of both peer-led and professionally-led support groups, providing an opportunity to connect with people who may be on a similar journey as you. Use these links to learn more: Join a Support Group or Start a Support Group
