Pelvic organ prolapse impacts the lives of millions of women in every country around the world. Women of all ages from childbirth through end of life. Women of all nationalities. Women from every financial and employment demographic. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, friends, every woman likely knows someone suffering in silence with POP. As we generate awareness and remove the wall of stigma and silence pelvic organ prolapse hides behind, women will recognize symptoms, talk about POP out loud, and seek guidance from clinicians.
Women with POP, clinicians, researchers, and academics from 177 of the 193 UN member countries have explored APOPS website, building a global network toward the advancement of POP awareness, evolution of POP education, and development of POP directives.
