The Scientific Program


The Scientific Programme of the17th World Congress on the Menopause will provide a unique balance between clinical practice and basic medical science pertaining to women’s health from midlife and beyond. The Programme, developed by the international Scientific Programme Committee, will embrace the congress theme of creating a roadmap to healthy ageing that can be used by clinicians and researchers to the advantage of all ageing women.
Inspirational plenary sessions on a variety of relevant topics will be delivered by global experts. Interactive sessions and symposia presented by leading clinicians, clinical researchers and basic scientists, will facilitate discussion and debate. New scientific discoveries and trends will be shared through oral free communications and poster presentations. In summary, the Congress Programme has been designed to ensure comprehensive coverage of the field of menopause and healthy ageing aimed at clinicians and researchers interested in the field of menopausal medicine
