3.4.1. Prepare Project Review

3.4.3. Implement Process Improvement

3.5. Egyptian culture seeks to limit access to fertility options; patriarchy is not accepting of widespread personal power, nor women taking control of their reproductive lives. Access to alternative methods of conception challenge the tradition, God, and their sense of control over women's bodies.

3.6. Limiting the access of control by the people enables those in power to have more of it. By focusing on religious "morals," the government it able to keep the population in fear of "haram."

3.7. Egyptians are very conscious of how outsiders view their "Egyptian identity" and fall back on the notion that outsiders cannot understand their culture from an American standpoint.

3.8. Reproductive technology challenges nature, and emphasizes modern humans' ability to control it more than ever, deciding when and how they can conceive children and become parents.

3.9. Islam is on conflict with these modern advancements because they challenge the ancient traditions. Falling back on religion and Islamic rule works as a safety net when people stray too far out of their comfort zones.

3.10. There is very much an East VS West mentality globally regarding test tube baby making.

3.11. People are often torn between their desires to have children, and to ensure they maintain adherence to the rules of their religions. It leaves one to question whether the religion is ultimately moral if it does not meet the demands of the practitioner.

3.12. Islam is very strict in its coding regarding fertility. Donation of sperm/ eggs/ uteruses is prohibited. Islam also denounces adoption, as it is against blood relation.

3.12.1. At the same time, Egyptian people are very wary of mix-ups occurring during donation, resulting in babies not genetically their own.

4. Dynamic Dr. Yehia

4.1. Open to working with an anthropologist in his practice, in an exchange of sorts. He provided Inhorn with real patients who were willing to discuss their situations, and she provided him with publicity.

4.2. Extremely unique physician. Western-trained, highly specialized in NRT and gynecology.

4.3. Embraces reproductive technology

4.4. He is one of only a handful of doctors (at the time) in Egypt who successfully provided NRT.

4.5. Dr. Yehia, due to his highly personable nature, caring attitude, and deep intelligence, has won the trust of many IVF patients.

4.6. Patients, especially female patients, appreciate a doctor who is interested in their situations, their problems, their circumstances. Finding physicians who genuinely care is very difficult; Dr. Yehia sets himself apart with this character.

5. Privatization of IVF in Egypt

5.1. Egypt is still a third world nation.

5.2. The industry for IVF is growing, as this is technology only available to the wealthy elites who can afford it out of pocket.

5.3. Egypt is a hub for NRT in all of the Middle East, particularly in part to their success in creating test tube babies.

5.4. Doctors are realizing the enormous business aspect (big, fat profits) to IVF; it generates a far greater yield than standard baby deliveries.
