EUGA 10th Annual Congress



The IUGA eXchange Program is an initiative first conceived by the IUGA Education Committee in 2004 with a view of inviting more international participation to IUGA, especially in countries with economic, political, cultural or language barriers. From the outset it has been designed as a mutual endeavor giving both the host country and IUGA the possibility to learn from each other - thus the name "IUGA eXchange". To participate in such an exchange of skills and knowledge, however, a couple of minimum standards have to be met. In order to develop any subspecialty, the basic specialist disciplines have to be evolved to a sufficient national or regional degree; to communicate at an international level a common language must be spoken. The objectives of the eXchange program are to promote the international exchange of knowledge and skills in urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery (URPS), distribute the guidelines for training in URPS proposed to improve the quality of care of patients with female pelvic health (FPH) problems, and improve identification of important female pelvic health issues in host-countries by IUGA and to strengthen contacts to health care providers involved. Requirements include the lack of a fully functional urogynecology society, that there is a National Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology and that the eXchange program be approved by the National Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology in that country. eXchange programs have been held in Mozambique, India, South Africa, Bolivia, Philippines, Sudan and Jordan.



eXchange meetings are intended for health care providers in the host country to attend. Please contact the local organizer of the program you wish to participate in. For general questions please contact
