Honorary Secretary – Dr Ravi Chandran

Dr Chandran is currently Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Gleneagles Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

He holds a Fellowship from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists UK and a Masters in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from the National University of Malaysia.

He is a Past-President of the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia and served as President of the Asia Oceania Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology from 2017-2019. His intimate knowledge of the vulnerabilities in women’s health in this region, catapulted him to the position of FIGO Regional Trustee from 2021-2023, during which time he established a concrete collaborative platform between FIGO and the Regional Federation.

Dr Chandran currently serves on the Expert Advisory Group for the FIGO Leadership Development Initiative and is part of the faculty developing a Leadership Training module. He has also led the initiative to streamline FIGO processes for the benefit of our Member Societies, and fully intends to continue with this endeavour in his current position. He is convinced that an efficient organisation combined with leadership empowerment in LMICs, will benefit our women who most need it.
