The International Society of Hematology has a new Web page where you can find information about our Society.

The International Society of Hematology is the first world professional society of Hematology founded in 1946 at a joint meeting of the Mexican, American, one Canadian and one British hematologist. For a decade it remained the only hematology society where the most important advances in the field were presented and where the leading hematologists in the world participated.

The Society has three divisions, the Interamerican, the European & African and the Asian- Pacific. Each has an Executive Secretary and there is a Board with a President that rotates periodically. There is a World Congress every two years and each Division also has a Divisional Meeting every two years on the alternate year.
