The Polish Gynecological Society is an organization that assembles a part of Polish gynecologists working at different institutions and positions. The primary goal of this entire group of professionals should be the care for the health and wellbeing of their patients – women at different stages of their life. Many activities that promote the improvement of population health result from good understanding of health problems of the Polish population and are implemented by means of ordinances, acts and prophylactic programs but fail due to poor response resulting from lack of knowledge and proper preparation. Unsatisfactory effects of prophylactic activities are connected withlow level of education. Types of scientific publications in “Polish Gynecology” are mainly dependent on the magazine profile. There are no limitations that would constitute a source of rejection of articles that deal with public health problems. In fact, the subject of many articles published in “Polish Gynecology” pertains to the problems of procreative health. Proper attitude and desire to live healthy might influence the course of pregnancy and neonate wellbeing. Women planning pregnancy, as well as the pregnant ones, should be made aware of that. General practitioners, obstetricians and pediatricians, like other doctors registered at the Polish Medical Council, receive both regional and national magazines published by Medical Councils and this way of reaching them seems to be the easiest.
