The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) invites you to participate in the XXII FIGO World Congress 2018, scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from October 14th to October 19th 2018.
The unique, beautiful city of Rio will undoubtedly attract delegates from all over the world, and allows us to anticipate a successful Congress with over 8,000 delegates expected. The Congress will be held at the Rio Centro, Rio’s conveniently located Convention and Exhibition Centre. Designed to securely host a large number of delegates, Rio Centro offers good facilities for all delegates, and is efficiently connected to the city centre and airport by public transport.
The FIGO World Congress is unique, being the only meeting related to the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology exhaustively addressing, during a full week, all aspects of women’s health in the world. The scientific programme will cover cutting edge topics in daily practice, the most recent development and management of the rapidly evolving health care requirements, as well as the crucial challenges concerning low resource countries.
The lectures and sessions will be provided by worldwide recognised experts in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, representatives of universities, private practice, major hospitals and health care institutions from around the globe.
For the industry, this XXII World FIGO Congress in Rio will represent a privileged opportunity to exhibit its developments, dynamics, excellence and expertise, and to share in the success of this most widely attended global meeting.
I look forward to welcoming you all to the FIGO World Congress in October 2018!
Prof. CN Purandare
FIGO and 2018 Congress President
We cordially invite you to take part in the FIGO World Congress, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 14 to 19 October 2018.
Rio de Janeiro is an exceptional city that awaits you with great anticipation. We will ensure that your participation at the World Congress is beneficial from the scientific and educational perspective. The Congress will also provide ample opportunity to explore Rio, its culture and attractions.
The Congress Scientific Committee is working tirelessly to organise the programme that will provide you with innovative knowledge, as well as topics that are part of the continuing development of our delegates.
The International Fellowship Programme will continue, as in previous years, and its details will be announced shortly. It will offer young doctors from low-resource countries an opportunity to observe the everyday practice of the local Brazilian hospitals.
Our organising team is working hard to ensure that the FIGO Congress in Rio is an unforgettable experience for you, and your families and friends, who we encourage you to bring to Rio.
On behalf of the Organising Committee we send our fraternal greetings and await you in Rio de Janeiro in October next year!
