Thus, in Russia, like in the majority of the Western countries, the demographic issue is most acute. According to the statistics for 2017, the natural population decrease is back, and the birth rate has dropped to the minimum level over 10 recent years. In this situation we need to concentrate on issues of the women's health, methods of treatment of infertility and complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
Oncogynecology remains another pressing issue to be discussed. Tumors of the female urogenital system seriously endanger life and reproduction, millions of women annually die from breast cancer.We will also discuss other burning problems daily faced by obstetricians and gynaecologists in their practice - perinatal diagnostics, pregnancy complications and critical conditions, high risk pregnancy, treatment of infertility and modern capabilities of assisted reproductive technologies. The participants will also review the issues of gynecological endocrinology and oncology, urogynecological and infectious diseases, contraception and aesthetic gynecology, visual diagnostics. I believe we must join our efforts to protect women's health and to help them live full life, become mothers, deliver healthy babies, remain active and attractive at any age.
