We are committed to increasing awareness of these healthcare issues and promoting optimal clinical management of the menopause and beyond.

Our Medical Advisory Council comprises the leading international experts in post reproductive health management, who are instrumental in instigating scientific research and creating consensus statements and guidelines for health professionals.

Although primarily a professional organisation, the BMS website includes information aimed at the general public, including a number of factsheets on various aspects of the menopause.
