Message from the President

Dear readers and ISPOG members:

Obstetric and Gynecological conditions always have an organic-biological, a social and a psychic component, no matter which is more apparent or able to be studied firstly or more easily. It is not the matter which is more important as the human being is a complex and cultural reality.
Health care providers in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and related fields (Reproduction, Perinatology, Oncology, Sexology, etc.) need up to date and proper tools to interact with each woman respecting the three components. She has her special demands, needs and rights, a culture and subjectivity. The professionals also have personal challenges and need interdisciplinary collaboration for taking care of her/himself and of the patient.
ISPOG provides tools, sharing of knowledge and shelter for the professionals that take care of women with a biopsychosocial , psychosomatic and integrated approach with the goal of empowering them and the national member societies in their own local circumstances.
We have learned a lesson in Berlin: no more walls but bridges. We will go on building them with the collaboration in harmony of all the professionals concerned with the Health Care and well-being of women in a global perspective.

Profesor Don Jesús Florido Navío. In Memoriam
Alicante, November 17th, 2015

It is with great sorrow that we have to express our last farewell to our friend and excellent companion Jesús, who died today in Granada, Spain.

After being the best pupil and follower of Prof Vicente Salvatierra, the founder of the Spanish Psychosomatic Society in 1986, from 1987 a Section of the SEGO (Spanish Obstetrics and Gynecology National Society) he was our President for many years, representing Spain in ISPOG Executive Committee from 1990 until 2004.

He was a brilliant academic, hard worker, outstanding human being and excellent companion. His work as a Professor and researcher followed until our last National Congress, Bilbao in May 2015, inspiring new generations, and chairing the Scientific Committee of our next International Congress 2016, although seriously ill for the last year.

We want to share our sorrow with his family and closest co-workers.

Carlos Damonte Khoury
