The number of IVF centers in Palestine has grown significantly in the past 20 years, with a corresponding increase in patients having undergone IVF treatment. Nonetheless, there is little knowledge about the quality and the outcomes of the services.  There are important information gaps relating to  accessibility, affordability and quality of IVF services  in Palestine.  This study aims to address some of the knowledge gaps  in IVF services. By exploring the demand and provision  of IVF services in Palestine, the study aims to provide evidence to inform policy development, better regulation and appropriate provision of this service. This will complement UNFPA’s extensive work on SRH by addressing an important, yet neglected area.
