European Federation for Colposcopy Congress 2024

25. Juni 2024

18th to 21st September 2024, Riga, Latvia.


Established 23 years ago, the EFC has been at the forefront of improving colposcopy standards and advocating for the equal prevention of cervical cancer in women across Europe.  Although Latvia still has one of the highest cervical cancer incidences in Europe, a lot of improvements in close collaboration with EFC have been made – including the development of colposcopy service and the implementation of the certificate in colposcopy method. Comprising 38 national colposcopy societies, the EFC actively influences and represents European colposcopists, emphasizing training, education, and evidence-based practices. This year’s congress promises to be a milestone event as we delve into key aspects aimed at eliminating cervical and other HPV-related cancers.

The virtual Congress program boasts speakers from over 25 different EFC countries, all leading experts in their fields. The versatile agenda covers essential topics, including HPV vaccines, screening, CIN management, genetics, interactive case sessions, and much more. Opportunities for networking and collaboration will abound, with free communication sessions promoting the latest research and engaging e-poster presentations. Delegates will have the chance to explore the sponsor’s exhibition, featuring the latest information, equipment, and technology in colposcopy and gynaecological care. We are confident that your participation will enrich the congress experience and contribute to the shared goal of advancing healthcare for women.

Discover Riga and Latvia! It is a Destination Worth Visiting Beyond the congress sessions! Take the opportunity to explore the historic charm and modern elegance of Riga. The city’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, with its captivating blend of medieval and contemporary architecture, offers a unique cultural experience. Immerse yourself in the vibrant energy of the Baltic region and discover why Riga is a destination worth visiting.

We eagerly anticipate your participation in the 10th European Congress of Colposcopy, where knowledge, collaboration, and cultural richness converge for an unforgettable experience.
