Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) and the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Medicina Sexual (SLAMS), welcome to the World Meeting on Sexual Medicine. This is the third ISSM meeting in Latin America, following previous well attended and successful meetings in Rio de Janeiro in 1990 and Buenos Aires in 2004.

Traditionally the ISSM world meeting has been a forum to exchange knowledge and to renew old and make new friendships within the global community of sexual medicine. São Paulo 2014 is an unparalleled opportunity to combine Science and Leisure in one of Brazil’s most amazing cities.

São Paulo with its multicultural population of more than 20 million, has more than 410 hotels, over 12,000 restaurants, 700 cinemas and theatres, 50 museums, 12 golf clubs, 7 soccer stadiums, 64 parks and 90 shopping malls. São Paulo is a major international airport hub and receives almost 700 weekly flights, connecting 39 cities in 24 countries through its 4 airports. Situated in the southeast of Brazil, 60km from the coast, São Paulo is a one hour flight from Rio de Janeiro, a two hour flight from Iguazu falls and 4 hours from the Amazon Forest.

Experience the life, the intensity, the “buzz” of São Paulo, home of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. 

Thank you for joining us …

President of the SLAMS/Local Chairman
