President’s Message

KFOG President
Dr. Sareena Gilvaz

Dear Seniors and Friends,

I am honoured to write this message after assuming charge as the President of KFOG.

Let me start by expressing my sincere thanks to all KFOG members for electing me as President of this prestigious organization. Since the inception of KFOG in 2001, it has been my proud privilege to have been involved with activities of KFOG, in various capacities.

We are indeed proud that our organization has been academically and socially very active and is unique in having programs like Confidential Review of Maternal Deaths (CRMD), Confidential Review of Maternal Near Misses (MNM), MDNMSR, EMOCAL, ORRT etc.

I acknowledge the contribution of previous office bearers and respected seniors, whose tireless efforts have created this robust organisation.

Covid 19 pandemic has taught us new things, even though it has taken away the pleasure of conferences and academic meetings in the physical sense. However that has not hindered the academic and social activities of this esteemed organisation. We have been right at the forefront conducting webinars, constantly updating our knowledge and practice guidelines, especially in the face of this global catastrophe.

Our website has now been updated and I am sure that our website will be a good way to streamline all our activities. In this site you would be able to find our journal, activities and many more.

One of our major achievements last year was that we achieved our target MMR 30 by 2020, however it was saddening to note that suicide was one among the chief contributors of MMR . We need to concentrate on this issue and disseminate the importance of perinatal mental health.

The presidential theme of this year is "Mind your mind project". I hope all member societies, clubs and subcommittees will adopt it. I am glad that we had conducted a RCOG/ICOG recognized certificate course on April 25th, 2021. Around 50 KFOG members attended this course.

Despite the unprecedented pandemic our organisation has managed to set a superior benchmark towards its academic and social responsibilities. I look forward to a wonderful active year and hope that with all your cooperation and support, we could take this society to newer heights and success.
