Objectives: Due to the high prevalence of infertility in the world and its social and economic effects on communities, the national registry system of infertility at various levels has been established in different countries over the years. This study was conducted to provide the model of the National Infertility Registry System for Iran.
Materials and Methods: This comparative study was conducted in 2016.The sample population consisted of the infertility registry systems in the United States, Canada and England. This study utilized articles, databases, books, related websites, and consultation with national and international experts to investigate the infertility registry system in developed countries (the United States, Canada, England) and proposed an infertility registry system for Iran in 7 main axes and 20 sub-axes, based on economic, cultural and geographical conditions of Iran. The proposed model was validated using Delphi technique at two stages resulting in agreement coefficient of 85%.
Results: In this study, the proposed model for the national Iranian registry system was proposed based on the 7 following aspects: the objectives of the system, the structure of the system, data elements, the criterion of the registry, the process of data collection and reporting, classifying and controlling data quality.
Conclusion: Due to the importance of the infertility registry in taking health measures, the proposed model can improve the management of infertile patients in terms of providing a system to follow the results and improve the effectiveness of the treatment, health family planning and controlling the factors influencing infertility.
