UPIGO Objective

Brief historic
The aim
The board

Over the years, UPIGO’s field of action has widened. The Union is now concerned not only with professional issues but also with ethical and medico-legal problems, and in a more general way with everything that concerns the social environment of gynecology.
UPIGO is an INGO (international non-governmental organisation) which enjoys participative status within the Council of Europe. UPIGO’s geographical territory has expanded considerably in recent years.
Eight African countries are currently members of UPIGO. Promoting quality care for all women and optimising the professional activity of gynaecologists and obstetricians in all countries : such are the ultimate goals of UPIGO.
