Dear Colleagues,

The COVID-19 we familiarized within 2020 is still continues after welcoming 2021. The best news for all of us is with the great effort of scientists, vaccine is discovered and vaccination started in our country. Our hope is that the pandemic will come to an end with this promising endeavor.

During this difficult times, we, as physicians, were very tired and suffered many irreplaceable losses. In loving memory of our Board Member Faik Mümtaz Koyuncu, I wish my condolences to all doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals who lost their lives because of COVID-19 pandemic.

As always, with all healthcare workers, we will continue to be at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. My deepest gratitude to all the healthcare workers who are risking their lives to save others. We believe our community will turn to their daily life as soon as possible with the help of our hard-work, commitment and dedication.

Our biggest wish for this year is to end this pandemic and restart our face-to-face scientific activities for women’s health with enthusiasm as before. I hope 2021 is still holding promise for everyone as healthy, safe, and productive year to come. I thank all the authors of articles published in 2020. They brought us interesting, useful and high-quality information that we can use in clinical practice. We are planning to continue to provide you with a broad spectrum of outstanding articles in our journal this year as well.
