    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.
