The paper presents the consequences of unintended childlessness, which can concern both men and women, as well as the partnership. The primary and secondary network of social support has been discussed and its importance in the diagnosis andtreatment of fertility problems. Amongmany benefits arising from the support ofchildless partners, the improvement of their quality of life is emphasized as well as making the communication in patient - medical personnel relationships better, increasing the chance of having the child and reduction of the time to get pregnant. Social support was emphasized to be particularly needed by partners at the stage oftaking decision to start treatment, subsequent stages of treatment and change of methods (procedures),termination of treatment (taking into account its effect), and adoption. Later the paper presents global and European initiatives to improve the quality of life of infertile couples, including the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) to all infertility treatment centers, objectives and tasks of the annual celebration of WorldFam, Fertility Awareness Month and proposals for new developments of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE). Basing on existing literature the evaluation of implementation of these recommendations and proposals in selected countries have been discussed. The problem of provision of support to infertile couples in the Polish reality, including in the region of Lublin, has been also presented.

W pracy przedstawiono konsekwencje niezamierzonej bezdzietności, które mogą dotyczyć zarówno kobiet, mężczyzn, jak i związku partnerskiego. Omówiono pierwotną i wtórną sieć wsparcia społecznego oraz jego znaczenie w procesie diagnozowania i leczenia zaburzeń płodności. Wśród wielu korzyści, wynikających zewsparcia bezdzietnych partnerów, wskazano na poprawę jakości ich życia, ułatwienie komunikacji w relacjach pacjent - personel medyczny, zwiększenie szansy na dziecko oraz skrócenie czasu do uzyskania ciąży. Podkreślono, iż wsparcie społeczne jest szczególnie potrzebne partnerom na etapie podejmowania decyzji o rozpoczęciu leczenia, kolejnych etapach leczenia i zmianie metody (procedury), zakończeniu leczenia (z uwzględnieniem jego efektu) oraz adopcji. W dalszej części pracy przedstawiono światowe i europejskie inicjatywy narzecz poprawy jakości życia par niepłodnych, w tym zalecenia Światowej Organizacji Zdrowia (WHO, World Health Organization) dla wszystkich ośrodków leczenia niepłodności, cele i zadania corocznych obchodów Światowego Miesiąca Wiedzy o Płodności (WorldFam, Fertility Awareness Month) oraz propozycje nowych rozwiązań Europejskiego Towarzystwa Reprodukcji Człowieka i Embriologii (ESHRE, European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology). Na podstawie przeglądu aktualnego piśmiennictwa dokonano oceny realizacji tych zaleceń i propozycji wwybranych krajach. Przedstawiono problem świadczenia wsparcia wobec par niepłodnych w realiach polskich, w tym w województwie lubelskim.
