About IFHNOS

  • HISTORY

    Dr. Jatin P. Shah, of New York, conceived the establishment of an international body bringing together all specialists involved in the care of patients with Head and Neck Cancer. He presented this thought to the Executive Council of the Society of Head and Neck Surgeons, (SHNS) at its Retreat in Princeton, NJ, USA, in the summer of 1985. The proposal was enthusiastically received by the SHNS, and he was encouraged to proceed. By August of 1986, leaders of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies worldwide were contacted to explore the feasibility of establishment of an International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies with the purpose of “establishing channels of communication to enhance exchange of information and improving knowledge as well as exploring new directions in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with head and neck cancer”. This proposal was enthusiastically received by leaders in the field from various parts of the world, culminating in the formation of a steering committee which met on May 1, 1987, at the Grosvenor House, in London. Representatives of sixteen Head and Neck Organizations from North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia were present. The steering committee drafted the constitution and bylaws of the Federation which was subsequently ratified by the Governing Council which consisted of one member from each member organization in the Federation. Dr. Jatin Shah was elected Secretary General by unanimous vote of the Governing Council.

    Initial programs of the Federation consisted of expanding the membership of the Federation with compilation of a newsletter, development of an international directory of members of component member societies and organization of World Congresses. Over the years the Federation has grown with a membership of 70 Head and Neck oncologic organizations, representing 58 countries, from every part of the world. Annual Newsletters were published initially, and these were eventually transitioned into an active and current Web site. (www.ifhnos.net). The Federation is able to reach over 40,000 specialists, located in nearly every corner of the world, providing care to patients with head and neck cancer through membership of its component societies. The Federation has successfully attained its initial goal and mission of establishing channels of communication to foster camaraderie amongst professionals involved in the care of patients with head and neck cancer.

    World Congress

    1. Quadrennial World Congresses of the Federation have been held since 1998, starting with the first World Congress in Mumbai, India in December 1997 under the leadership of Dr. Ashok Mehta.
    2. The second World Congress was held in December 2002 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil under the leadership of Dr. Geraldo Matos D’Sa.
    3. The third World Congress was held in Prague, Czech Republic in June 2006 with Dr. Jan Betka as Congress President.
    4. The fourth World Congress was held in Seoul, Korea with Dr. Kwang Hyun Kim serving as President.
    5. The fifth World Congress celebrating the Centennial of the Head and Neck Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was held in New York in July of 2014 with a record breaking attendance of over 3,200 attendees..
    6. Future congresses of the IFHNOS are planned for Buenos Aires in 2018, and Rome in 2022.

    World Tour / Summits

    An innovative Global Continuing Medical Education program, “The IFHNOS World Tour”, was introduced in 2008, offering a two and half day conference conducted by World leaders in the Head and Neck specialties, over 4-5 weeks. This program has been offered in 34 locations around the world, including London, Barcelona, Rome, Athens, Warsaw, Moscow, Mumbai, Beijing, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Bogota, St. Petersburg, Frankfurt, Antalya, Bangalore , Manila, Shanghai, Mexico City, Kiev, Amsterdam, Cairo, Ahmedabad, Guangzhou, Jakarta, Brisbane, Sao Paulo, Moscow, Prague, Riyadh, Delhi, Seoul, Hong Kong, Auckland, Rio de Janeiro, Sharm El Sheikh, Sydney, Kaohsiung, Santiago, Birmingham, Kolkata, Milan, Chennai, Nur-Sultan, Leuven.


    Fellowship / Training Programs

    A new program of the Federation, "Global On Line Fellowship" was introduced in 2014 with the goal of standardization of training of specialists in the field of Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology. This very successful program currently has over 300 candidates from 48 countries, pursuing the Fellowship. It is anticipated that the graduates of this fellowship program will be Head and Neck surgeons with an improved knowledge base, judgment, and a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment for their patients.


    Masters of Head & Neck Surgery

    The practice of “Good Head and Neck Surgery” is at a variance in many parts of the world. Standardization of good surgical technique throughout the world, adhering to the principles of Surgical Oncology is crucial. With that focus, IFHNOS introduced a New Program of, “Master Courses in Operative Techniques in the Head and Neck Surgery” in 2019. These hands-on courses with Live surgery, cadaver dissections, and didactic presentations, with sequential operative steps and videos, of proper operative techniques will be given by Global experts - Master Surgeons - in a 3-day program in any part of the world. The focus of this program would be on proper oncologic, safe and clean surgical techniques, their indications, pearls and pitfalls, and complications etc.

    Well-known leaders and Professors of Head and Neck Surgery from around the world, have volunteered to participate in this program.


    International Visiting Scholar Program

    The IFHNOS is proud and pleased to announce the establishment of their International Observership Program. This program will offer an observership grant in the amount of US $5,000 to selected candidates who will have the opportunity to travel to one of the centers of excellence in North America listed below and spend one to two months observing clinical activities and/or research activities to further strengthen their clinical competence and research productivity. The selected candidates will have an opportunity to observe in a tertiary care head and neck cancer center of excellence where they will have an opportunity to participate in educational activities of the institution as well as observe in the operating room. The International Observership Program is available to any candidate who has met the requirements for this travel grant and has been selected by the Program Committee.


    World Head and Neck Cancer Week

    During the 5th World Congress of IFHNOS in 2014 in New York a proposal was made by Dr. Pankaj Chaturvedi of India to declare July 27th as the World Head and Neck Cancer Day. This was unanimously approved by all in attendance and endorsed by the chief guest, Michael Douglas. Since then, Head and Neck Cancer Day has been observed around the world on July 27th. Due to logistic reasons, IFHNOS has recommended that any day during the week of July 27th be observed as the Head and Neck Cancer Day and offer/conduct its activities as recommended.
