Cervical Cancer Screening Program 2023


In 2023, the Cervical Cancer Screening Program made significant strides in raising awareness, enhancing medical expertise, and participating in national and regional initiatives to combat cervical cancer. The successful expansion into new municipalities in Kosovo marked a substantial advancement in women's health and cervical cancer prevention.

Highlights from the last quarter include:

  • 2,278 women and girls received cost-free PAP tests, contributing to a total of over 15,000 tests provided. The program maintained a focus on early detection to enable timely interventions for prevention or treatment.
  • Two impactful awareness-raising lectures were held in Peja, adding to a total of six throughout the year, positively impacting 109 women.
  • The Institute of Pathology implemented a double-reading protocol for Pap test samples, with 55 samples undergoing retesting in the last quarter and 105 throughout the year, ensuring the accuracy of results through collaboration with the Regional Hospital.
  • Advocacy efforts with the National Board for Cancer Control (BNKK) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) led to program expansion into new municipalities, including successful launches in Obiliq and Gjilan, a significant achievement for women's health improvement.
  • Recognizing the program's importance, AMC was invited to participate in National Board for Cancer Control meetings, demonstrating active involvement at the national level.
