Abstract

Objective: To compare the regulations of Assisted Human Reproduction in England, Italy, Norway and Ireland, countries that have a high Human Development Index.

Results: Italy, England and Norway have specific laws of Assisted Human Reproduction. Ireland is the only one with a Guide of Professional Conduct and Ethics issued by the Federal Council of Medicine of the country. Conclusion: The similar situation of Human Development Index in the studied countries has no influence in the Assisted Human Reproduction regulations.
