Statement of the Founding Committee of the Georgian Society for Sexual Medicine
Sexual Medicine is the interdisciplinary field of medical Science. The subject of this sphere of medicine is sexual health, including practical field and scientific dimension of sexuality-related problems. We are taking into consideration how difficult is the current situation in Georgia. We have serious lack of sexual education in a great part of our population. The lack of sexual education is the real threat to the future of Georgian nation because it is linked with big risk of serious sexual dysfunctions. Therefore, we believe that it is necessary to have a new, multidisciplinary, non-profit, academic and scientific organization in Georgia called: "The Georgian Society for Sexual Medicine”.
