Dr. S. Shantha Kumari, Chairperson ICOG

Greetings from ICOG!

The ICOG is an institution committed to set standards, maintain quality and enhance excellence in the field of academics in Obstetrics and Gynecology in our country. Taking over as the chairperson of this prestigious college is a very pleasant responsibility for me. I look forward to my tenure with aspirations to help in standardising the practice of our specialty throughout the length and breadth of our country so that we can optimise our health care delivery system in ObGyn. Women's health issues have a paramount importance in shaping a society and as ObGyn specialists we have the opportunity to contribute to this goal. In an era of increasing complexity of clinical practice and abundance of confounding literature it is important to have strong local evidence based guidelines to justify and optimise the standards of care all across the nation.

This year the theme of our academic activities will be "Principles,Protocols and Practices" – PPP – with an agenda to develop practical, relevant and useful guidelines in various sub topics of ObGyn that can be implemented in our country. Dr Jaideep Malhotra our president FOGSI and myself have conceptualized this theme to strengthen the FOGSI guidelines.

I urge one and all of you to come forward and help us in achieving this aim. We al have a lot of practice based experience in India and ICOG provides the platform to amalgamate individual unit experiences to formulate locally relevant evidence and thus develop a culture of evidence – based practice. We have made it simpler for you to contact us in this matter if you are interested. You can send us your topic of interest and your proposal to develop a guideline on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We intend to use technological advances for telecommunication to facilitate interaction between various units preparing guidelines to minimise carbon footprints and time constraints for all those involved.

I have served the ICOG as a secretary for the past 3 years and interacting with all of you has been a very satisfying and enriching experience. I therefore have no doubts that we will all get together in 2018 to make the dream of FOGSI-ICOG- PPP 2018 a grand success.
