MISSION & BASIC FACTS

The International Union of Angiology (IUA) is a society for vascular biology, vascular medicine, vascular surgery, endovascular interventions and phlebology. The IUA provides a focus for scientific endeavours across the complete spectrum of arterial, venous and lymphatic disorders, which are represented by the blue, yellow, and red rings of the IUA logo.

The mission of the IUA is to:

  • stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge across the entire field of angiology at an international level
  • facilitate the propagation of new developments in angiology through the organisation of congresses, national and international meetings, seminars, workshops, and through publication of the journal International Angiology
  • promote research worldwide with establishment of committees and commissions to support the various activities related to the study of all aspects of arterial, venous and lymphatic disorders
  • provide a ‘World Vascular Forum’ for researchers and clinicians from all countries across the globe to come together to share their scientific knowledge and experiences in angiology.

Key Facts about the IUA:

  • Founded in 1950 in France
  • 1600 members
  • 73 represented countries
  • Biennial world congresses organized in even years and regional chapters’ congresses organized in odd years
