Middle East Sexual Health Committee

Middle East Sexual Health Committee

The Middle East Sexual Health Committee was established in 2009 at the World Congress of Sexology in Sweden. The committee started with four core members (in the picture above) and it is growing, now extending to eight countries within the region. Most of our members are individual members of WAS mainly due to lack of existence of sexological associations within the region. However with the growth of such organizations, future efforts will be made to encourage membership from range of organizations as well.

The World Sexual Health Day has been celebrated in seven countries in the region despite the political turbulence, multiple natural disasters and overlapping with the month of Ramadan. This shows that Middle Eastern sexologists are very committed and devoted to the field.
