The Association of Deaf Women in Prizren

The lack of implementing the law for Health Nr.04/L-125 and its deficiencies are discriminatory against deaf people. The under funded health care sector is adversely affecting the health of women resulting with the lack of an interpreter for deaf women to raise general awareness about reproductive health, and prevention of breast cancer. Women in rural areas have specifically stated the lack of interpretation as an obstacle in the access to gynecological and antenatal treatments. Being able to recognize deaf women and their nature, the Association has created a more familiar picture, has acquired evidence and experience, and will be able to work and collaborate with women with all Disabled categories and we will try to work in many municipalities.

The Association will undertake the initiative "Women become active in preserving their health" aiming to improve the health of women and girls and increase the quality of  services for health prevention.
