  • 2. MASSAGE FROM FIGO PRESIDENTDear ColleaguesS ArulkumarIt has been over six months since Itook office as President of thisprestigious organisation. A greatdeal has been achieved by eachand every one of you, both asindividuals and as members ofyour respective national societies.Over the years you have strivenhard to reduce maternal mortalityworking on serious or near miss morbidity audits. These tools wouldbe greatly beneficial for India and several other countries.In March, Professor Cabero-Roura and I attended the 7thInternational DIP Symposium on Diabetes, Hypertension, MetabolicSyndrome, and Pregnancy in Florence, Italy - a FIGO Pre-CongressWorkshop, organised in collaboration with the World DiabetesFoundation (WDF), was attended by over 200 delegates.Obstetricians and gynecologists have a major role to play inreducing obesity and diabetes, and their consequences. Maternaland morbidity and to improve womens health. My sincere thanks foryour ongoing efforts. The past FIGO Presidents, Officers, ExecutiveBoard members, Chief Executive, Administrative Director and staffhave all worked alongside you on these goals. You can certainlyexpect the same commitment from the new Officers, Board and staff.There is, naturally, much more to do to help achieve womens rightsand health.Working with valuable partnersWe need to continue to work together with various like-mindedorganisations, such as our national societies and RegionalFederations, the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), theInternational Paediatric Association (IPA) and many, many others.For example, we wanted to have a strong relationship with variousUnited Nations organisations: now we have a UN representative oneach of our FIGO Committees. This will ensure timely alignment ofaims and activities, and a strong link at both HQ and on the groundlevels.Education and training: a FIGO cornerstoneOur swift progress with FIGO activities in education and training hasbeen achieved to a great extent under Past-President ProfessorGamal Serours expert leadership through the FIGO Committee forCapacity Building in Education and Training, chaired by ProfessorLuis Cabero-Roura. Two major FIGO Regional Conferences will beheld in 2013: Cartagena, Columbia, from 1-4 May 2013, and AddisAbaba, Ethiopia, from 2-5 October 2013 (see page nine for details).FIGO will also participate in a FOGSI-FIGO International Conferenceon Recent Advances in OBGYN in Hyderabad, India, in September.FIGO has also continued its ongoing collaboration with OlympusSurgical Technologies on Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)Workshops, the most recent one being held in Khartoum, Sudan, inFebruary.More generally, the Committee has provided educational sessions ina number of national and subject-specific conferences. One suchsession at the 56thAll India Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology(AICOG; January 2013), organised by the Federation of Obstetric andGynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI), was a great success. Itwas a staggering 8000 participants. My sincere congratulations tothe outgoing and incoming Presidents, Professors P K Shah andHema Divakar. FOGSI has a major role to play to improve all aspectsof Womens health. The past presidents, office bearers andcommittees have done extremely well and I feel proud of theirachievements and FOGSIANs. FIGO should benefit from theexperience of FOGSI. In addition to the President elect we haveFOGSI members contributing to the FIGO oncology, save themothers and new born, ethics and scientific programme committee.FOGSI has done wonderfully well with the FIGO logic project andgenerated an electronic maternal death review format and arenutrition, pre-term birth, intrauterine growth restriction, immediatebreast-feeding and the infant childhood period are some of thefactors that determine the final outcome. Early influences atgametogenesis and early development may promote epigeneticchanges that may have a major impact on NCDs. The first 1,000days from conception appear to be the key in reducing thisepidemic, compared with our efforts to reduce the 5 Ss in adult life(salt, sugar, saturated fatty acids, sedentary life and spirits inexcess). FOGSI should progress this agenda as it is a majorepidemic. This can be done by linking up with governments,midwives, paediatricians and public health physicians.Web-based knowledge transferIn this highly sophisticated age of technology - eg mobile phones,tablets, computers - we should be able to provide obstetricians,gynecologists and health professionals with education anywhere,and at any time, through books, images, videos and master classes.Not every professional has adequate access to this. To counter this,FIGO has signed an historic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)with the Global Library of Womens Medicine (GLOWM –www.glowm.com), founded by Paula and David Bloomer, makingGLOWM its educational platform and helping provide content withthe input of FIGO Committees and experts from various nationalsocieties. I have now assumed the position of Editor in Chief (mythanks to former Editor in Chief Professor Jack Sciarra, FIGO Past-President, for his able leadership), and will work with the GLOWMeditorial team to bring you the latest in evidence-based practice.Please use this excellent educational platform and recommend it toothers (more detail can be found in the Chief Executives report onpage three).Transfer of skillsFIGO is currently exploring a joint collaboration with ProfessorHarshad Sanghvi, from Jhpiego, and Mr Tore Laerdal, Chairman ofthe Laerdal Foundation, on the enhancement of teaching and trainingin life-saving skills. Through a specific programme of Buy one -Donate one, they have agreed to donate a large number ofMamaNatalie® birthing simulators - FIGO will explore how best todeploy them in teaching centres so that they are constantly used tobenefit healthcare workers, medical and midwifery students, andprofessionals. They will also assist with funding to organise Pre-Congress Workshops on essential obstetric functions, principally onprevention and treatment of post-partum haemorrhage and helpingbabies breathe. The first such Workshop has been funded and will beheld before the first FIGO African Regional Conference in Ethiopia,October 2013.Clinical fellowshipsFIGO has also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding(MOU) with Wellbeing of Women, a leading charity in the UK2

I encourage you all to attend WD, and contribute to itsimportant objectives.World Congress 2015Preparations have started in earnest for FIGOs next World Congress,to be held in Vancouver, Canada, from 4-9 October 2015. The 2012Rome Congress was an enormous success, and I have no doubt that2015 will also exceed expectations. Dr Abdul Aziz Yahya, Chair ofthe Congress Organising Committee, will work closely withProfessor Joanna Cain, Scientific Programme Committee Chair, andDr Mark Heywood, Chair of the Canadian Local OrganisingCommittee and his team. Marta Collins, FIGOs Events and MeetingsManager, will liaise with FIGOs Chief Executive, Professor HamidRushwan, and Administrative Director, Bryan Thomas. The Lord Patelhas agreed to be our adviser, and we will certainly benefit from hisvast knowledge, experience and wisdom. Please keep the datesfirmly reserved in your diary, as we would like to see as manycolleagues as possible there.FIGO on the groundFIGO Initiatives continue apace, as you will see from the updateswithin this Newsletter. It is most important that FIGOis active at thegrassroots level in as many countries as possible, workingcollaboratively with national societies. This is the priority, and wecontinue to explore additional opportunities to enhance ouractivities.Officers Meeting, February 2013The new Officers group had a stimulating and challenging meetingheld over two days in early February. Everyone brought in new ideasto enhance FIGO activities: Professor C N Purandare, President-Elect, on improving our income; Professor Ernesto CastelazoMorales, Vice-President, on closer interaction with nationalsocieties; Professor Gian Carlo Di Renzo, Honorary Secretary, on theimportance of our expert Committees issuing good practiceguidelines; Professor Wolfgang Holzgreve, HonoraryTreasurer, onthe revenues and matters related to the publication of FIGOs journal,the International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics (IJGO); andProfessor Gamal Serour, Past-President, on the Alliance for WomensHealth, and other partnership activities. These were well receivedand the resultant proposals will be submitted to the Executive Boardfor approval and action when it meets in London in mid-June.Committee Chairs and members were also finalised at the meeting,with care taken to ensure appropriate geographical and genderrepresentation. In future Newsletter issues, we will carry more in-depth reporting on Committee and Working Group activities. Allthese specialist FIGO bodies - ably co-ordinated by Marie-ChristineSzatybelko, FIGOs Senior Administrator and Committee Manager -will regularly keep us in the picture on their myriad of activities, andbring us up to speed with the latest developments in the differentspheres of our discipline.I wish you a happy and productive year.Professor Sir Sabaratnam ArulkumaranFIGO President3
