This report outlines a microsurgical training program that has established 16 centers around the world for the reversal of sterilization by microsurgical technique and for the evaluation of such procedures. An obstetrician-gynecologist was selected from each of several developing countries where an existing family planning program was responsible for a large number of sterilization procedures. Each course participant attended a 2-week course in microsurgical techniques for tubal anastomosis and then returned to his or her home country to establish a microsurgical center for sterilization reversal. Each of these centers has since been evaluated by the program director and is fully operational.
