Report of Healthy Women, Healthy families

By Garentina Perdhku | Project Leader

Diakonia Agapes is committed to improving the health of women in the Kuçova Municipality through the "Healthy Women, Healthy Families" project. This initiative focuses on providing essential health education, screenings, and treatments to ensure better health outcomes for women and their families.

The project is implemented in the following villages: Kozare, Magjatë, Gegë and Tapi villages in Kuçova Municipality. A medical team composed of a gynecologist and a lab technician provides services such as:

  • Health awareness sessions for Cervical Cancer, the importance of PAP tests and knowledge of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).
  • A PAP test is offered for women who are at risk.
  •  Health notebooks are distributed to each woman. 

Based on the services provided there were some findings related to the test done for the women:

  • High prevalence of reproductive health issues among women in rural areas.
  • Low awareness and neglect of personal and reproductive health.
  • Significant presence of infections, indicating the need for improved hygiene practices and regular medical check-ups.
  • Identified cases requiring specialized treatment (e.g., metaplastic changes, polyps, etc.).

During the reporting period, Diakonia Agapes participated in Little by Little Campaign. Despite efforts, the campaign did not raise sufficient funds to continue to provide service for this period. Even though the women have expressed that:

  • Positive response to having medical services available in the village.
  • Increased awareness and intention to seek further medical advice and treatment.

Diakonia Agapes needs your support to continue this work. Your donations will help bring medical professionals to these underserved areas, provide essential health education, and conduct necessary screenings and treatments.

Your contribution can make a significant difference in the lives of women in Kuçova Municipality, helping them achieve better health and well-being for themselves and their families.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Sincerely, 

Diakonia Agapes Team
