38th Congress of the Société Internationale d'Urologie 2018
The World Uro Oncology Federation was formed in May 2005 by the leadership of the 19 societies of Urologic Oncology from around the world met to form the World Uro Oncology Federation (WUOF). These societies, represent very diverse regions, traditions, health care systems, cultures and ethnicities. There was a common sense amongst the leaders that many of the challenges they faced were similar, and that they had much to learn from each other. The individual societies share a number of common goals, related to education and training, research, scope of practice, and collegiality. The purpose of the WUOF was to provide a formal liason between these groups.
