Welcome to ISPOG

ISPOG is the lively world-wide organisation of professionals from different disciplines working in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. It is a platform for mutual exchange and understanding from the clinical, research and educational perspective. ISPOG is concerned with Psychosocial and Psychosomatic issues in particular and women’s health in general.

Our identity is based on the respect of the diversity of culture and subjectivity. Currently, 18 national societies are members of ISPOG and we are happy to support the health professionals of every country working on raising their own national society in order to join in.

International Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Being the important Kyoto Congress of 2007 a good example, ISPOG is growing and expanding to the Ibero-American, Middle and Far East Countries, and connecting actively with global societies that share common fields of interest.

From the time ISPOG was created, professional and social position of Obstetrics and Gynaecology has changed, and ISPOG acknowledges the new situation and is concerned about of the well being of the professionals.
