The European Endometriosis League (EEL) has two main goals. Our aim is to extend public awareness and support scientific research in the field of Endometriosis and other co-existing gynaecological conditions.

To achieve these goals, we have built a European board of medical experts on Endometriosis (EEIC: European Endometriosis Information Center).

Furthermore, we are conducting scientific meetings, seminars, educational programmes, congresses, research projects and serve as a frame for patient self-support groups.

The results of our research projects are published in scientific journals and thus brought to the public’s attention.

Renowned physicians founded the EEL in 2005. So far we are active in several different European countries and are currently extending our activities into additional countries.

The EEL is supported and financed through membership fees, donations and an advisory board of the medical industry.


The chairman of the non-profit association is Engin Oral, Prof. MD, Turkey

He is being supported by five internationally renowned experts.
