The 2019 annual conference of GIBS has been appropriately envisaged around the current theme Beyond Horizon in order to bring to the forefront the research that is being carried out in various domains linked to IC/BPS across the globe.

IC/BPS is a severe and chronic pain syndrome that affects the bladder lining with urinary urgency and frequency. Population suffering from this debilitating disease is nearly 70 per cent of women who are still battling due to lack of information and no treatment available. Diagnosing IC in women can be challenging because, its symptoms overlap with other common conditions in women i.e urinary tract infection. Hence timely identification of this chronic disease is the need of the hour to avoid its progression to end stage urinary bladder state. A deeper understanding amongst gynaecologists and urologist can bridge the growing gap between diagnosis and treatment.
