Between September 15 and 20, 1985, Berlin hosted the XI World Congress of the International Federation for Gynecology and Obstetrics. This was indeed an honor, for 1985, marked the German Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics' one hundredth anniversary and the Congress opened on the precise day of the centenary. The international organization owes its existence to Professor Hubert de Watteville who organized the forty-two national organizations into an international society in Geneva, Switzerland in 1954. Today, there are more than twice as many member nations as when the international organization was founded. The International Federation for Gynecology and Obstetrics promotes the worldwide exchange of scientific, technological and medical ideas relating to gynecology. It serves the health of mothers and children even in countries which cannot achieve acceptable health standards on their own. The international organization holds World Congresses every three years. At these gatherings, members share their knowledge of diagnosis and therapy for women's illnesses with the hope of strengthening women's health care worldwide.

This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood® First Day Cover for the Germany 60pf Gynecology and Obstetrics stamp issued July 16, 1985.
