72st Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball on 27th January 2024

Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball goes Charity
On January 27th, 2024, the Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball will take place for the 72nd time. A traditional Viennese ball, which has already stood for a traditionally great charity character for many years. Also at the 72nd Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball the charity idea is in the foreground and the entire net proceeds will be donated to a selected charitable institution. In 2024, the net proceeds will go to the Association of Autonomous Women's Shelters in Austria and its project "StoP - Neighborhoods without Partner Violence".
StoP is part of the umbrella association AÖF, but above all it is a sustainable and future-oriented overall package in victim protection and violence prevention, where all people, especially neighbors, are invited and empowered to actively engage against domestic violence against women and children. Civil society is encouraged to take responsibility, not to look away and not to ignore signs and indications of violence in the immediate environment.
Violence against women and children takes place every day in Austria. The extent of violence has increased enormously: Every 3rd woman over the age of 15 experiences male violence at least once in her life. That is one third of the female population. Above all, violence makes people ill and has serious long-term consequences for those affected.
Therefore, in addition to laws, authorities and women's shelters, the participation of civil society and the population is needed. An active, attentive and trained neighborhood is needed to help recognize, interrupt and stop violence at an early stage. The neighborhood project "StoP-City Neighborhoods without Partner Violence" therefore works directly with the neighbors and raises awareness of those around them. This model of violence prevention is already having an effect! More and more neighbors are paying attention instead of looking away. More and more neighbors are actively participating in StoP. More and more neighbors are talking about intimate partner violence and showing moral courage when there are signs of violence in the neighborhood. More and more neighbors say StoP to violence against women and children!
You too can join in! Everyone can show moral courage and contribute to ending domestic violence. What to say. What to do. That is the motto of StoP. More information about the project can be found HERE.

Support the StoP project and the Autonomous Women's Shelters in Austria and take the opportunity to get involved in a good cause at the 72nd Vienna Medical Doctors’ Ball, network and experience an unforgettable night together.
We cordially invite you to be there and do something good together with us.
The Vienna Medical Association and the Ball Committee are looking forward to seeing you!
