Dr. Jaqueline Brendler
President of the 21st World Congress for Sexual
is a great personal pleasure to invite you and to welcome
you to Latin America and to Brazil where the World Association
for Sexual Health will convene our 21st biannual congress.
Sexual Health is pivotal to the well
being and safety of everyone on our planet and our congress
will ensure that the diversity of positive and healthy sexual
experience has prominent expression throughout. The theme
has been selected by the local team and resonates as crucial
for so many of us – sexual issues straight from the heart.
What this may mean to you will probably be different to the
next person to read this invitation letter but there will
almost certainly be some common factor that bonds each of
you by building bridges across the whole of the sexual health
community. Whatever your discipline and your understanding
of our 2013 theme, I am certain that there will be much in
common with fellow delegates and that this congress will be
a great opportunity to share our experiences with generosity
and through collegial interaction. I hope that during these
most difficult times around the globe that you will find the
space and resources to be able to participate in one of the
most important sexual health meetings in 2013.
Please join your colleagues in Porto
Alegre and participate at the WAS congress in 2013.
President of the WAS
