International Menopause Society


The IMS was established in 1978 and was the first menopause society. At the time, it signalled to the medical community that there is a need to address specific gender-based and menopause-based issues, which until then had not been regarded as important. In the following years, many national and regional menopause societies have been formed, but the IMS remains the only society with a global responsibility and, as such, is a leading resource to which the media as well as the medical professionals look for opinion and guidance. This has been particularly important in recent years when the merits of hormone therapy have come under intense debate. With most of the key opinion leaders as members, a strong Executive Board representing all areas of the world, and over 40 national and regional menopause societies affiliated to the IMS, we are in a unique position to provide education, comment and support.

Our activities are both scientific (the triennial World Congress, focused workshops, position statements and press releases, and Climacteric – the Society’s journal), and educational (the World School for the Study of Menopause or WSSM, an Educational Slide Kit, and a pocketbook on practical guidelines for managing menopausal women – Health Plan for the Adult Woman).
