First study to look at Australians’ use of surrogacy

Research into how Australians use surrogacy shows that most people thinking about it are considering or using overseas compensated arrangements. The study, published online last week in the Medical Journal of Australia, surveyed people considering or already engaged in surrogacy.

SPHPM's Jean Hailes Research Unit and Surrogacy Australia found that only eight per cent of the 259 surveyed used surrogacy in Australia. India and the US were the most common destinations for those who travelled overseas to access surrogacy.

Study co-author Dr Karin Hammarberg, from the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, said there were multiple reasons Australians were going overseas for surrogacy.
