The Section was founded by Prof. Ruben Hernandez (Venezuela) and Prof. Said Abdel Azim (Egypt) in Madrid in1996. Prof. António Palha (Portugal) then joined shortly after and collaborations with the World Association of Sexology (WAS) (presided by Dr. Kevan Wylie) and the European Federation of Sexology (EFS) (presided by Dr. Chiara  Simonelli) were quickly established. These collaborations enrich the Section with a wealth of expertise.

The Section collaborated in many publications with World Psychiatric Association (WPA) during the past 3 decades and has been very active with Human Sexuality Programmes in WPA Meetings and Congresses.

Our most recent activity is the Sexual Disorders (SD) Course as part of Mental Health course led by a WPA initiative moderated by Prof. Afzal Javed and in collaboration with NCD Academy (authors Dr. Radwa Abdelazim Elfeqi (Section     Co- chair) and Dr. Adarsh Tripathi). The course aims to raise awareness of sexual disorders and widen the scope of knowledge and expertise for General Practitioners (GPs) in order to improve the diagnosis and management of such disorders as well as adequate referral (when required).
