Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce you that our 16th National Congress of Obstetric and Gynecology was done with the attendance of 1700 participants who were satisfied with current scientific and social sessions.

For the last 2 years, I am working on a project in order to decrease maternal mortalities all over the country. I am mentioning especially “fear of our colleagues” from litigation or violence from patients/patients’ relatives. And I am saying “no deal to fears at medicine!”, we cannot do our works with these threats. For this issue I visited more than 20 cities and listened my colleagues. I realized that the main issue is the cooperation between the colleagues! If they support each other in case of an emergency situation or in a conflict with patients, the percentage of litigation and violence towards doctors would be decreasing. Since saving our patients lives needs safety and protection we need firstly cooperation with each other. I will continue to work on this “colleague cooperation support!”

In medicine, producing new and reliable datas are the most important issue for all over the world. We want to take a significant, strong and reliable part of this scientific world as the Turkish Obstetrics and Gynecology Journal with your supports. We are waiting your precious papers to our journal.
