Dear Latin American colleagues,
Receive all our sincere greetings and best wishes for your personal and professional life, as well as for the National Societies that you lead.
We have just participated in the FIGO 2021 Congress, under the Presidency of Dr. Carlos Füchtner (Former President of FLASOG) who completed an outstanding term as FIGO President in the 2018-2021 period.
Many Gynecology-Obstetricians from our continent have actively participated in the academic activities of the great world event and FLASOG has had two important activities: Symposium: “Repercussions of the COVID 19 pandemic on the health of Latin American women” and the Session: ”Latin America Evening”, as well as a Virtual Institutional Stand.
Likewise, it is very gratifying for FLASOG to inform that Dr. Edgar Iván Ortiz, past president of our Federation has been elected by the FIGO Assembly as a Member of the Board of Trustees representing Latin America and that Mexico joins the Council that they already comprise. : Brazil; Chili; Colombia and Guatemala.
In this way and taking into account that FLASOG, as FIGO’s Regional Allied Federation, also has the possibility of participating in Council meetings through its President Dr. Néstor Garello, a solid Latin American presence is formed in FIGO, which without no doubt will redound to benefits for our region.
We are presented with a great opportunity to work together for the “Rights of our women” and the strengthening of our Medical Societies. United we will achieve great goals.
We salute you with our most distinguished consideration and esteem.
Dr. Miguel A. Mancera Dr. Néstor C. Garello
