It has been more than 30 years since Louis Brown was born on July 25th 1978 by Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards at Bourn Hall Clinic, United Kingdom. Nowadays almost 5 million babies all over the world have been successfully delivered by this technique. Improvement of knowledge and technologies brought IVF as one of procedure which could solve the problems of many infertile couples, including in Indonesia.

The first Indonesian IVF technique was done at Harapan Kita Children and Maternal Hospital Jakarta in 1987. It was performed by Sudraji Sumapraja, and colleagues. The inspiration came from Prof.DR. Ing. BJ Habibie speech in 1983. Which is mentioned that Indonesia had to follow developed country technology. At the end of 1985 when Sudraji Sumapraja became vice director of Harapan Kita Children and Maternal Hospital, he got the idea to launch the IVF program in this hospital.
