He is member of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Lebanese Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology and has been elected President of the Lebanese fertility Society from 2017 until 2019. During this period, he organized many awareness campaigns about infertility and fertility preservation. He did a great accomplishment by pushing the Lebanese order of physicians and Ministry of Health to admit that infertility is a disease and that everyone has the right to access treatment. He also worked very hard to establish guidelines and regulations for IVF centers and Assisted reproductive technologies in Lebanon. In these regards, a project of ministerial decree and a project of ministerial decision that cover all aspects of this field have been written. He will continue fighting until they become effective.
