FIGO masterclass series – developing a better understanding of PCOS

Summary

This masterclass series, organised by FIGO's Committee on Reproductive Medicine, Endocrinology and Infertility, highlights that polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that has long term implications on women’s health, from adolescence to menopause.

Recognising that up to 10% of women and girls around the globe live with PCOS, the key aim of the series is to educate health care workers on the diagnosis and management of PCOS for the prevention of long term issues for women.

Dr. Ivonne Diaz, Director of FIGO's Division of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Wellbeing
