Australian cross-cultural issues and sensitivities, the influence of changing gender roles and the mechanisms available for existing policies to change in response to the medical breakthroughs and changing social needs will also be explored. Existing polices and the allocation of resources in the health sector to reproduction and genetic services will also be covered.
