FIGO World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics
FIGO World Congress
Every three years since FIGO's founding in 1954, thousands of gynecologists and obstetricians gather in one city to spend a week analysing and discussing new medical discoveries and looking at problems and issues that can be addressed by the application of low-cost techniques.
The site for the World Congress rotates between the Africa-Eastern Mediterranean, Asia-Oceania, Europe, Latin America and North America regions of FIGO. The site is selected six years in advance by a majority vote at the General Assembly.
