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.

#EMASMenopauseandWork

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.
