On March 3 the conference was opened by the Rector of TSMU Professor Mykhailo Korda.

“Obstetrics and Gynaecology is one of the most important fields of medicine. The matter of health care of women of reproductive age and newborns is very important. Ukraine is the least among the European countries because of the lack and low quality of medical services. So, there are some problems at national level. To my mind, such scientific forums help to find solution of the aforementioned problems, to share new information and experience. I wish you a fruitful work at a hospitable Ternopil land”, Mykhailo Korda said.
