IUGA & Bekkenbodem4All Present Bekkenbodembal

Public Forum

The IUGA Public Forum has started to raise awareness about the prevention and treatment options, and to get women talking about a topic that is often uncomfortable or considered taboo. IUGA began offering a Public Forum program to the public each year in the location of its Annual Meeting since 2011. The first IUGA Public Forum was offered in 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal.  Since that first program, IUGA has held Public Forums in Brisbane, Australia; Dublin, Ireland; Nice, France; Cape Town, South Africa; Vancouver, Canada and Vienna, Austria.

This year the IUGA 48th Annual Meeting will be held in The Hague, The Netherlands. The Public Forum is organized by IUGA in collaboration with the Dutch Patient Organization Bekkenbodem4All. It will be an informative theater show, with humor and entertainment, called ‘Bekkenbodembal’. For more information and tickets, see website

This Public Forum will be recorded, translated to English and made available (after the Public Forum) as a video for you here.
