The world population is growing and ageing. This is particularly true for the female part and the World Health Organisation has predicted a 4-fold increase of women over 50 by the year 2030. Already by the age of 50 women start to outnumber men, and after age 75 there are twice as many women as men. Current knowledge of women's health issues after the age of 50 is vital, as women will be the most common patients almost irrespective of medical specialty! Some of the burning questions and hot issues discussed during the 5th European Congress on the Menopause & Andropause are: Prevention is better than cure; how could this be done cost-effectively?; Is this applicable to all major diseases?; How should prevention be organised?; Can results from one population be transferred directly to another?; What is the preventive role of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in women?; Could HRT also be used to treat common diseases and disorders and if so, which form is best used and for how long?; and Could HRT also be advocated for men?
