‘Pura Vida’ (pure life), is a popular saying in Costa Rica, which was the venue for the World Organisation of Ovulation Method Billings (WOOMB) International Conference and Training. It was the first time the conference was being held in the Americas.
WOOMB Latin America and WOOMB Costa Rica hosted the April 27–May 2 event under the guidance of WOOMB International (Australia). The week was packaged with two days of conference, a gala dinner, a tour of San Jose, the capital, and three days of training.
The 250 conference delegates came from 27 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, France, Canada and USA, with our Latin neighbours from the Caribbean, Central and South America, making up the greater number of participants. The T&T contingent comprised Pauline Phelps, and Joseph and Joan Ryan of BOMA-TT; and Dr Sally-Ann Ishmael. English and Spanish interpretation was well managed.
