FIGO is a professional membership organisation that brings together 130+ obstetrical and gynaecological associations from around the world. FIGO’s vision is that women of the world achieve the highest possible standards of physical, mental, reproductive and sexual health and wellbeing throughout their lives. Our work to achieve this vision is built on four pillars: education, research implementation, advocacy and capacity building.
FIGO leads on global programme activities, with a particular focus on sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia. We advocate on the global stage, working to raise the status of women and enable their active participation in achieving their reproductive and sexual rights. We provide education and training for our Member Societies and build capacities of those in low-resource countries through strengthening leadership, translating and disseminating good practice and promoting policy dialogues.
FIGO is in official relations with the World Health Organization and consultative status with the United Nations.
The Collège National des Gynécologues et Obstétriciens Français (CNGOF) brings together French obstetricians and gynaecologists, spanning the range of specialties within the profession.
The main purpose of the society is to promote clinical best practice, improve the daily lives of its practitioners and unite professionals within the field. The College has an executive committee and scientific committee who represent all areas of obstetrics and gynaecology.
CNGOF regularly publishes recommendations for professional practice and is committed torepresenting its membership through continued training and education. The College is in close relations with other European gynaecology and obstetrics societies, especially from Francophone countries.
