What is JSSHP ?

The Japan Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (JSSHP) has been established in 1980 as a branch of International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISSHP) .

About six hundred members (556 persons, 13 supporting companies) are registered to the JSSHP at present.

The committee holds annual congress and publishes a scientific journal.

In 1998, the 11th World Congress of the ISSHP was held at Kobe by the efforts of the members of JSSHP, and was the first congress of the ISSHP held in Asia.

The aim of JSSHP is attributed to make remarkable progress in health and welfare of pregnant women through basic and clinical investigations, widening knowledge and supporting young investigators who are dedicated in the research on Pregnancy induced Hypertension (PIH).

The society established a new criteria and classification of PIH in 2004, which was based on data collected through nation-wide survey on the disease. This work has been officially adopted by Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 2005.

Furthermore, the society published a guideline for the management of PIH recently. This has been widely accepted by healthcare providers working in the clinical settings of maternal and fetal medicine in the nation.

History of Our Society

Our medical society was established for the basic research and clinical treatments, focusing on pathophysiology of pregnancy-associated hypertension (PAH; formerly toxemia in pregnancy ), in 1980.

At the outset, several core scholars on PAH in the scientific committee of Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG), founded this society for continuous basic research and clinical application in this field.
