In order for new reproductive technologies to improve the health and well-being of women, they must be acceptable to and used by women. We need, therefore, to not only know about the technology itself; we also need to know about the individuals who intend to use the technology and factors that influence use. Accordingly, this issue focuses on the multiple determinants that influence acceptability of reproductive technologies and the policy, political and legal implications associated with their use. Topics include personal and contextual barriers to use, limited access for poor women and women of color, and the social controversy surrounding this area.
