IVF Fund Application
The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) IVF Fund complements the efforts of multiple veteran-serving organizations that successfully advocated for legislation allowing the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment to veterans who have lost the ability to conceive due to injuries incurred during service to our nation.
Since it will take time for the legislation to take effect, BWF will offer financial assistance to affected veterans to cover unreimbursed costs up to $5,000 associated with IVF treatments. The IVF Fund, supported by grants from Merck & Co., Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and EMD Serono, complements the “Serving Our Veterans” program established by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART).
The origin of this initiative came out of the groundbreaking “Intimacy After Injury” conference, hosted by the Bob Woodruff Foundation in December 2014. This two-day event explored the effects of war injuries on sexual relationships and fertility.
