Blyth, Eric and Auffrey, Monique (2008) International policy on cross border reproductive services. In: International Federation of Social Workers IFSW General Meeting 2008, 13-15 August 2008, Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.

Social workers have committed themselves to enhancing the rights and well-being of all human beings through a variety of previous policy statements. Those that are especially relevant to cross border reproductive services (sometimes described in the literature as fertility or reproductive ‘tourism’), because of their particular impact on women, are:
• International Policy on Health (International Federation of Social Workers, undated)
• International Policy on Human Rights (International Federation of Social Workers, 1996)
• International Policy on Women (International Federation of Social Workers, 1999)
• Ethics in Social Work: Statement of Principles (International Federation of Social Workers and International Association of Schools of Social Work, 2004)
