In her lecture, Marcia Inhorn, one of the world’s leading medical anthropologists, explores the global market in fertility services drawing on her many years of fieldwork in Dubai—now a major hub of assisted reproductive technology (ART). By exploring the demanding and complex journeys of 220 ‘reprotravellers’ from 50 countries to Dubai’s ‘cosmopolitan’ fertility centres, Inhorn argues we underestimate the costs of these often disappointing fertility odysseys, leading her to call for new forms of activism to address unmet reproductive health needs.
