Australasian Menopause Society

The Australasian Menopause Society (AMS) is the peak body representing doctors and other health care professionals who each have a special interest in women’s midlife health, the menopause and the promotion of healthy ageing.

 

The aim of the AMS is the advancement of knowledge about the menopause.  As well as holding an annual scientific congress in Australia and New Zealand, some AMS members are involved with the Asia-Pacific and International Menopause Societies, recognising that women living in Australia and New Zealand may have widely differing experiences of menopause.
