The International Pelvic Pain Society (IPPS) was founded in 1996 by health professionals as a forum for public and professional education regarding chronic pelvic pain. One of the primary objectives of the IPPS is to "educate health care professionals how to diagnose and manage chronic pelvic pain, thereby changing the lives of patients worldwide." The IPPS is especially focused on addressing the pelvic health needs of women. For health care providers, the IPPS website offers a number of helpful resources such as downloadable articles and Powerpoint presentations concerning Endoscopy, Vulvodunia, Pelvic Congestion, and Physical Therapy, to name a few. The site also offers a collection of Featured Scientific Articles, downloadable IPPS newsletters (current and past), an assemblage of annotated links to related organizations, and more. Offerings for patients include a downloadable Patient Education Booklet, Patient Testimonials, and a service for locating nearby health care providers.
