Dear colleagues and friends!
I am very glad to inform you that 2018 has started with very good news for our Association. Almost half-yearly negotiations and intensive work carried out by the Executive Committee resulted in the successful conclusion of the tripartite Memorandum of Cooperation between the Association of Obstetricians-Gynecologists of Ukraine (AOGU), the European Council and the College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (EBCOG) and the Group of Kusum Companies (Kusum Healthcare Private Limited). According to this Memorandum, we will be able to promote the European experience of providing medical care to the women’s population, as well as improve the quality of doctors training in Ukraine in order to bring existing practices in our country closer to the existing European and world standards.
A number of scientific, educational and practical measures have been planned for the period of the next 5 years to reach the stated ambitious objectives. In particular, it is foreseen to send members of our Association to participate in European educational events. The trip will be bankrolled by the group of Kusum companies.
The nearest EBCOG Congress, as you know, will be held on March 8-10 in Paris (France) (www.ebcog2018.org).
I hope that participation in educational events of this level will allow us to expand our professional contacts with colleagues from the European Union and promote continuous professional growth of local doctors, teachers, scientists and organizers of healthcare, which will allow our patients to receive medical help of European quality.
President of the NGO “AOGU” Valery Zaporozhan
