The Congress will be held Riocentro, Rio’s conveniently located Convention and Exhibition Centre. Designed to securely host a large number of delegates, Riocentro offers good facilities for delegates, and is efficiently connected to city centre and airport by public transport.

FIGO Congress is unique, being the only meeting related to the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology exhaustively addressing, during a full week, all aspects of Women’s Health in the World. The scientific programme will cover cutting edge topics in daily practice, the most recent development and management of the rapidly evolving health care requirements, as well as the crucial challenges concerning low resource countries.

The lectures and sessions will be provided by worldwide recognised experts in the field of Reproductive Medicine, representatives of universities, private practice, major hospitals and health care institutions from around the globe.

Unique, beautiful city of Rio will undoubtedly attract delegates from all over the world, and allows anticipating a large success for the Congress.

For industry, this XXII World FIGO Congress in Rio will represent a privileged opportunity to exhibit its developments, dynamics, excellence and expertise, and to share the success of this most widely attended professional meeting.
