Established in 1987 as a not-for-profit, the International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS) unites interdisciplinary members of the gynecologic cancer care team including gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, allied health providers, and other clinicians and researchers who devote their professional lives to gynecologic oncology research and patient care.


The mission of the International Gynecologic Cancer Society is to enhance the care of those affected by gynecologic cancers worldwide through education and training and public awareness.cropped-icon_lg.png

We achieve our mission through strategic collaborations with regional and international organizations, hosting and supporting scientific meetings, promoting research and publications, outreach, and other activities that:

  • Raise public awareness of the importance of early recognition and treatment of gynecologic cancers
  • Connect professionals interested in gynecologic cancers around the world
  • Support research to achieve optimal care of women with gynecologic malignancies
  • Provide mentorship, education and training worldwide

In 2018, the society established the International Gynecologic Patient Advocacy Network (IGCAN), a broad network of organizations and individuals working both independently and collectively contributing to patient outreach, public awareness and education, and patient advocacy initiatives to improve the lives of those affected by gynecologic cancers worldwide.
