It is with great sadness that we inform the IUGA community of the passing of one of IUGA’s founding fathers, Bozo Kralj. Dr. Kralj chaired the 1987 Annual Meeting held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and was a pivotal force in bringing eastern Europe into the IUGA family. Dr. Kralj went on to lead IUGA as President from 1988-1990 and spoke at the very first Regional Symposia held in 2008, also in Ljubljana. In 2009 he was awarded IUGA’s highest honor – the IUGA Lifetime Achievement Award – for his dedication and contributions both to IUGA and the field of urogynecology. His sense of humor, hospitality, and friendship will be missed by many.
