Summary

The Latin American Registry of Assisted Reproduction (RLA) is part of the Latin American Network of Assisted Reproductive Technology (REDLARA). It is a voluntary registry, which collects and publishes regional data yearly since 1990. The main objective of RLA has been to disseminate information on ART procedures performed in Latin America. Since 2010, it is a cycle-based registry, used to monitor outcomes, as well as trends in safety and efficacy, contributing to the development of better health interventions in the region and the development of appropriate public policies. New centers willing to report to RLA are obliged to pass an accreditation processes, which is re-assessed every 5 years. The accreditation program started in 1985 and provides a certain guarantee for minimum standards of performing and reporting ART procedures but is also seen as an external quality control program that helps institutions look at their results and introduce changes when necessary.
