China is in East Asia and the world’s most populous country, with a population of around 1.404 billion. In 2015, the incidence and mortality in ovarian cancer and cervical cancer in China are some of the highest in the world. There are more than 5,500 gynecological oncologists in China working at more than 138 cancer centers. Not all practicing specialists are current members of the Chinese Society but over time we hope that will change so more and more can take advantage of the benefits.
Dr. Quinn, President of the IGCS, said “We look forward to our partnership with China. Based on the sheer number of people living in China, the potential impact we can have on their members and ultimately the care of women in their region will be extraordinary. The burden of disease is really remarkable; we feel over time we will begin to make really meaningful improved outcomes for Chinese women.”
Dr. Qi Zhou, President of the Chinese Gynecologic Cancer Society who was instrumental in solidify the partnership says that “participating in the IGCS Strategic Alliance Partnership Program is an excellent opportunity for CGCS to offer a more formalized practice to the Chinese gynecologic oncologists, especially the younger generation. By collaborating with the IGCS, we will establish a network to allow an exchange of ideas and promote international cooperation for the clinicians in China. The leadership of CGCS believe that the collaboration between IGCS and CGCS will offer better care and better life to the women in China afflicted with gynecologic cancers.”
