Welcome To The
South African Menopause Society

The South African Menopause Society (SAMS) is one of South Africa's leading nonprofit organizations that is dedicated to promoting women's health during midlife and beyond, through the understanding of menopause. It boasts a membership of over 190 leaders in the field. This allows SAMS to be the dominant resource on all aspects of menopause to both healthcare providers and the public. To help meet its objectives, SAMS organizes regular scientific meetings featuring acknowledged experts in the field. With a multidisciplinary membership of menopause experts from diverse healthcare fields, SAMS is uniquely qualified to provide for consumers a wide range of menopause-related information that is both accurate and well-balanced, presented without bias for or against any point of view.


New guidelines on postmenopausal hormone therapy from the International Menopause Society were released in 2011 and are now available for your information. Read them by visiting the IMS website.
