Annual Report 2005–06

ACART's Annual Report 2005–06 has been released by the Minister of Health.

The 2005–06 financial year was one of transition as the Committee developed an understanding of the new legislation and its role, as well as determining its work programme.

Significant work has been undertaken in preparation for public consultation in late 2006 and early 2007 as an input to ACART’s advice to the Minister of Health on human reproductive research and assisted reproductive procedures. Work has also started on developing advice on the use of previously cryopreserved eggs.

Another focus for the Committee has been on developing relationships - with the Minister of Health, the Ministry of Health, the Ethics Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology, and other ethics committees. In particular, ACART and Toi te Taiao: the Bioethics Council have agreed to work together on embryo research, with Toi te Taiao facilitating public dialogue in the lead-up to ACART’s consultation on human reproductive research. ACART has also worked to develop its relationship with Māori, to ensure that its consultation processes are effective for Māori.

The 2005–06 annual report of the Ethics Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology (ECART) is appended to ACART’s annual report.
