The World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) was founded in Rome in l978, (3rd WCS) after Paris 1974 and Montreal 1976. It is the umbrella organization for Sexology and Sexual Health.
We developed in WCS in Valencia, Spain 1997, a Declaration of Human Sexual Rights, that was adopted unanimously in 1999 at the General Assembly in WCS 1999, Hong Kong China.
JUAN JOSE BORRAS VALLS was one of the main leaders that conducted the WCS, and with almost 2000 people in the Palace of Music, developed with other leaders the VALENCIA DECLARATION OF HUMAN SEXUAL RIGHTS. This was a paradigmatic change of Route in our field.
www.worldsexualhealth.org contains this DECLARATION in many languages. After this, Amnecy, Montreal, Antigua PAHO, Geneva WHO and many events including the WORLD SEXUAL HEALTH DAY succesfully followed this way and got recognition in the whole globe,making SEXOLOGY a scientific discipline.
This is one of the WAS tracks and perhaps the banner and flag of honor. We will discuss the impact, achievements, goals and new objectives for the inmediate future. We have a lot to do, and this is just the beginning, specially for women and children not only in developing countries but anywhere. The world today despite the progress in technology is going backwards in human relations, violence, spirit poverty, and a severe social and economic crisis.
We have a role on this.
Young people are waiting.
