Guidelines and education

The European Menopause and Andropause Society (EMAS) provides guidelines and education on menopause and andropause. These include information on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and sexual dysfunction.

EMAS also offers educational resources for healthcare professionals, including training on menopause management and updates on the latest research findings. The society aims to improve the quality of life for individuals going through menopause and andropause and enhance the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals caring for them.


EMAS is proud to publish position statements written by international experts on management of health conditions affecting midlife health and beyond. Recommendations are evidence-based and suitable for integration into local guidelines worldwide


Women’s health is increasingly recognized as a global health priority. Managing perimenopausal and postmenopausal health is a key issue worldwide. Therefore, EMAS is making available all short fact sheets to help women, healthcare and non-healthcare professionals understand menopausal health.

EMAS Care Online consists on summaries and advice for clinicians and researchers involved in midlife health.

EMAS Menopause in the Workplace


In 2023 the global female population is over 4 billion. Women form a large part of workforces worldwide, and many will be working throughout their menopausal years.

Women with severe menopause symptoms may exit employment or reduce their working hours, with a negative effect on income and security in later life. For employers, this means the loss of experienced staff with valuable skills and talent.

Thus, EMAS is leading in health and wellbeing frameworks and policies to incorporate menopausal health as part of the wider context of gender and age equality and reproductive and post-reproductive health.
