posted in: About IMS | 0

The Indian Menopause Society is a multidisciplinary national society. It was launched in 1995. It is committed to fostering the comprehensive well-being of the mature & elderly Indian women. The society provides a common forum for medical and other interested health professionals and people from all walks of life to work towards the goals of the society.

The goals of the society are

  • To increase awareness regarding menopause and aging through public health and education activities.
  • To promote a multi-disciplinary multi-factorial comprehensive approach to the care of these
    women—medical and non-medical.
  • To regularly update doctors and health professionals in the field of menopausal medicine to ensure appropriate    health care for these women.
  • To facilitate exchange of ideas and experiences of different disciplines since the physical, mental and emotional    health of women in the years after menopause is truly multidimensional.
  • To collect information and data with particular reference to Indian women.

  • To help provide awareness and services to the less-privileged group of women of the society.
