Asian Society of Gynecologic Oncology (ASGO):
A new society for doctors working against gynecologic cancers in Asia
Last October, the 12th Biennial Meeting of the International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS) was held in Bangkok, Thailand. It was another successful scientific convention for doctors working against gynecologic cancer all over the world. The homepage of the IGCS states that the goals of this not-for-profit, independent organization are the prevention, treatment, and study of gynecologic cancer, as well as the improvement of quality of life in women with gynecologic cancer throughout the world . It also states that IGCS strives for global representation, reflecting the diverse cultural, economic, and geographic impacts of gynecologic cancer. In addition to the IGCS, there also exist some regional societies, such as the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) and the European Society of Gynecologic Oncology (ESGO), which are fundamental organizations for doctors in America and Europe.
