Australian And New Zealand Vulvovaginal Society

The Australian and New Zealand Vulvovaginal Society (ANZVS) represents gynaecologists, dermatologists, pathologists, GPs, sexual health physicians and allied health professionals that have a professional interest in vulval diseases.

ANZVS wishes to acknowledge The Guardian, The Great Wall of Vulvas drawn by Guardian readers around the world and published in full here.


ANZVS is committed to the education of medical specialists and allied health professionals who currently practise in the field of, or who want to enhance their knowledge of, vulva and vaginal disorders.

We support our members with access to webinars, yearly clinical updates and workshops, and a biennial scientific conference. Through our website, ANZVS provides up to date, accurate and peer reviewed information, both to enhance clinician practice and for patient education. A large number of our resources are free or open access. To maintain these resources we depend upon our membership. We encourage health professionals involved in the management of patients with vulvovaginal diseases to become members and support the society that supports you.
