// EURAPAG | Assembly of Delegates 2021 [read more] //
I am honoured to be nominated by new Executive Commitee as President-elect of EURAPAG. I am very grateful for the appreciation of my contribution organising the 14th European congress of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology. I would like to thank the former President Prof. Milko Sirakov and all Board members of EURAPAG 2014-2017 for wholehearted support, mentoring and active participation in the preparations of the Congress. Working together we are able to achieve incredible results.
As the interest in the paediatric and adolescent gynaecology around the world is noticeably increasing, the field is often being discussed not only between gynaecologists but also among general practitioners, paediatricians, urologists, endocrinologists, haematologists, and oncologists. It is an excellent sign that our congresses are getting attention from practitioners outside of gynaecology, as paediatric and adolescent patients often require multidisciplinary approach.
Today in many countries, including Europe there are no guidelines in PAG field. Issues regarding PAG subspecialty in various countries are dealt with by different specialist, their experience, knowledge and practical approach vary. Our goal is to help in training these specialists internationally.
I am delighted to notice that our Organisation attracts new members. Colleagues from Estonia and Belarus participated in our EURAPAG Congress for a first time in Vilnius. In order to make the information about our activities widely available and to improve communication we will emphasize the regular updates of our website and facebook account.
I will do my best to support Paul Wood and whole Executive Board during the next 3 years in achieving our goals and in preparations of national PAG congresses and the next European Congress in Rotterdam.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or other Board Members if you have any ideas, issues or questions.
