Welcome to the FOGSI Website

Dear Colleagues,

I am really privileged to be President of our esteemed Federation, FOGSI of which I have been a member since 1984. Believe me, I cherish every moment of the 30 years of this learning process as FOGSI has given me a platform for interaction with colleagues from all over India   at an academic and personal level.  FOGSI is one of the largest organizations of specialized professionals with over 29,310 members spread in 225 societies. FOGSI is a classical confluence of unity in diversity like the Indian nation.

The phenomenal growth, progress and spectacular achievements of the FOGSI speak volumes of the solid foundation laid as well as the vision, able guidance and leadership provided by the founder members.  With this background I would like to share my vision for FOGSI.

My theme :  Empower women … Empower India …. Pledge  for  excellence!!  Though women have progressed in a number of spheres yet much more needs to be done. FOGSIANS should work along  with health care policy  makers  to  address  women’s health needs  in  a holistic way starting from conception to senescence  as  Women’s health  is wealth of the Nation.

Maternal mortality is one of the basic health indicators of a society. Our vision 2020 is to have maternal mortality rate comparable to that of the developed countries. We can do this if every FOGSIAN pledges for excellence, works in close liaison with the existing National Health programs in collaboration with FOGSI. 

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. ….. Ronald Reagan Focused workshops for training & capacity building of maternity care providers for Management  of  Postpartum hemorrhage  and  Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy  which will  help in  reduction of Maternal Mortality & Improve  Perinatal outcome …need of the hour !!

Workshops  for  achieving excellence in practice ... With the help of our team   we  have designed  18 workshops  on various important clinical  topics, to ensure that  everyone  gets  empowered  with  the latest   knowledge and enhances  their skills. These include PCOS, Infertility & Ovulation Induction, Early & Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, Caesarean skills, Management of Fetal growth restriction, Preterm Labour, Neonatal resuscitation, Postpartum care and Contraception.

This Annual report is a true reflection of the hard work put in by the office bearers, chairpersons and members.

Together, we can achieve the goals set forth & also push beyond to frontiers that may test us, but in the process, I believe make us stronger and closer to serve the women  and  make a difference.
