About EGOS

The Egyptian Gynaecological Oncology Society (EGOS) is a multi-disciplinary team of gynaecologists, onco-surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists, working towards providing quality care for women with gynaecological cancers in Egypt. EGOS is registered at the ministry of social solidarity in Egypt as a non-governmental civil society member under No. 11402 of 2021. 

The “ankh” or “key of life” was chosen as the logo of The Egyptian Gynaecological Oncology Society (EGOS). It is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol that was most commonly used in writing and in Egyptian art to represent the word “life”  and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself.
