Abstract

Introduction: Traditionally, gamete donation has been practiced so that donors
and recipients are unknown to each other and individuals conceived following a
donor procedure receive little or no information about their donor. However, a
key topic of recent debate, policy formulation and regulation has been the
extent to which donor-conceived people should be allowed to ascertain information
about their genetic and biographical history. Worldwide, ten jurisdictions
currently enable donor-conceived individuals to learn the identity of
their donor and an eleventh has passed legislation enabling them to do so
that is yet to be implemented.
