|International Menopause Society
The International Menopause Society, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, has designated October 18 as World Menopause Day. In observation of the day, the IMS and the member national societies of the Council of Affiliated Menopause Societies distribute materials and organize activities to inform women about menopause, its management and the impact of estrogen loss. Local societies can also collaborate with other organizations working in the field of adult women’s health, such as societies for osteoporosis and breast cancer, to organize joint events.
Women's health is an important topic to cover. World Menopause Day can be promoted in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness to compile a complete women's health special section, both in print and online.
