in the general meeting or published important scientific results.
Survey "Breast Disease"
order to present the state of care of breast diseases worldwide and to shed light on the position of
the professional society for obstetrics and gynecology in the various issues relating to breast
diseases in the various life and life situations, a survey of the FIGO members is indispensable. In
addition to the specific questioning of the care situation, the extent to which the various
specialist societies are obliged and authorized to do so in relation to breast diseases in their

promotion of policy dialogues.
