Our committee was founded in 2010 with the goal of improving women's health. This academic year we focused on the following five activities for the second consecutive year: cooperation between the department of pediatric surgery and the department of obstetrics and gynecology for the treatment of persistent cloaca and Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome in Japan; assessment of the educational training of women's healthcare advisers; increasing screening for breast and cervical cancer; conducting the Nationwide Survey of Prescribing Practices for the Treatment of Menopausal Symptoms; and preventing osteoporosis in survivors of gynecologic cancer. The activities of each subcommittee are detailed below. This report is based on the Japanese version of the annual report (Acta Obst Gynaec Jpn 2021;73(6):684–699).
