Our vision is that women of the world achieve the highest possible standards of physical, mental, reproductive, and sexual health and well-being throughout their lives.

We lead on a diverse range of global program activities and we advocate on a global stage, especially in relation to specific Global Goals pertaining to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, and non-communicable diseases.

FIGO actively collaborates with many other global, national and regional organisations to promote the wellbeing of women and to raise the standards of practice in obstetrics and gynecology.

Your reward will be to be part of an organisation of committed people passionate about transforming the future to ensure that every newborn, mother and child not only survives, but thrives.
