There are thus:

  1. Maternal & Perinatal Health Care Committee (now renamed Maternal & Fetal Medicine)
  2. Oncology Committee
  3. Reproductive Endocrinology Committee
  4. Journal Committee, which supervises the Asia Oceania Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (now renamed Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology Research)
  5. Population Dynamics Committee (now renamed Sexual & Reproductive Health)
  6. Endoscopy Committee (now renamed Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery)
  7. Ultrasound Committee
  8. Urogynecology Committee

These committees report to the Council and General Assembly, which is normally held every two years in rotation during congresses of the Federation.
