On March 24, the member organization of the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN), Drugëza, held a health lecture with 17 women from the village of Rezalla in the Municipality of Skenderaj.
The participants talked with Dr. Emine Shabani-Goxhuli about the importance of preventing and treating breast cancer, as well as the best ways to take care of their reproductive health.
“It is important that the topic is no longer taboo and us, women, discuss with other people or go directly to the doctor in case we have doubts about any changes in our body and specifically when we its about our breasts,” said Shabani-Goxhuli, among others.
However, one of the attendees drew attention to the fact that despite the fact that all women know how important the Pap Test is, there is still reluctance to do it. She further added that awareness lectures like this are among the best forms of changing this situation for the good of women and their health.
This initiative is supported by the 16th round of the Kosovo Women’s Fund, which for the first time provided organizational support to member organizations, thanks to financial support from the Sigrid Rausing Trust.
