International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease

Dear Colleagues, 

On behalf of the ISSVD Executive Council and officers, Scientific Committee, and Local Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to join the 25th Jubilee Postgraduate Course and World Congress of the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease (ISSVD 2019) to be held from September 16-20 in Torino, Italy. 

The five ISSVD days in Torino encompass basic and advanced lectures on vulvovaginal diseases, workshops, hand-on courses on vaginitis, laser and radiofrequency, scientific sessions and free communications. The interdisciplinary team working in the vulvovaginal diseases field is the main ingredient of a successful meeting and better patient management. ISSVD is about to celebrate its 50th birthday and Torino will be its 25th biennial event. 

In Torino you’ll have the chance to meet up with colleagues from all over the world, to make new friends and establish the basis of new scientific collaborations. The stimulating scientific program and the social program allow you to live the fascinating atmosphere of Torino in the fall, when the city fully displays its charms. 

Torino has the beating heart of Italian culture, food and wine. The French House of Savoy moved its capital to Torino in 1562 and employed some of the best architects of the time having as result the grand boulevards and piazzas, palaces and castles. 

Torino was the first capital of unified Italy, an amazing mix of history and beauty, with the Po river on its East side and sitting at the foot of the Alps. The main green spaces, Valentino Park and Colletta park, allow for lovely walks, and along the river you can admire the architecture of the grand villas and residences. 

Do you like chocolate? Then try Torino’s chocolate. Torino’s expertise for chocolate developed in the hands of innovative chocolatiers, offers exciting traditional and artisanal chocolates. 

Torino is located in the Piedmont region, which encompasses the Asti, Alba, and Langhe regions, which are incredibly famous wine regions and Alba is the white truffle capital of the world. 

Torino has the second-most important Egyptian Museum, after the Cairo’s one. The National Museum of Cinema, which is housed in the Mole Antonelliana, the Automobile’s museum and others, unique examples in Italy, are just waiting for you. 

And we are looking forward to welcoming you in Torino!
