International Women’s Day 2023

We are the new SIG Women’s Health and we would like you to join us and celebrate Women’s Day.

This year we want to make a special mention to all those women who suffer daily the consequences of their environment.
Those women who pay the consequences of living in disadvantage. It can be war, can be peace.
It can be north or south, east to west.

Those women for whom society has thought silence is the best treat to receive.
Those women who are deprived of power of decision, of voice.
Those who cannot vote.
Those women who are not allowed to speak for themselves.
Those women whose opinion is not taken into consideration.

Despite women being briefly half of the world population, we are still considered a minority.

But we can change that.
We can raise our voices together and fight for equity. That gap that we try to close daily can be smaller tomorrow.

We, as doctors, have the exquisite privilege of sharing our opinion and this can be listened to.

We do celebrate Women’s Day.
And we want to keep celebrating every eighth of March.
For us, for them and for the ones who are to come.

Our new logo

Dear Friends,

a big moment for our still young organisation.

The comprehensive process of choosing our future identity was sucessfully completed. The last step, after council selected from strong candidates, was finalising the new logo.

The website is still work in progress and will receive a personalized template and more content needs to be transferred and added in some sections. As this is much simpler now we can assure you there will be more updates than before.


Brussels is approaching

Check out our own preconference overview or head directly to the conference website. The only thing you definitely shouldn’t do is sitting on the fence.
