Dear colleagues and friends,

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, we commemorate and celebrate women’s achievements, resilience, and power worldwide.

This day serves as an opportunity to remember the injustices faced, reflect on the challenges women encounter, and celebrate their accomplishments and contributions in all spheres of life.

The International Federation of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology recognizes the significance of this day and joins the fight for gender equality and the empowerment of adolescent girls.

In our daily work, we strive to promote the health and well-being of girls and adolescents, providing them with a friendly environment and access to quality information and services to encourage free and informed decision-making regarding their health and future.

On this International Women’s Day, we reaffirm our commitment to working together to build a fairer and more equitable world for all women, girls, and adolescents.

Together, we can achieve real and lasting change.
