Healthy women healthy families report
The project: Healthy Women, healthy families continue to help women who live in Kuçova Municipality with health examinations and provide information for Cervical Cancer and Sexually Transmitted Infections. The project aims to create a healthy life for women and their families.
Diakonia Agapes continued to collaborate will healthcare providers in Kuçova Municipality. Our partners in health centers report that women neglect to care for their health and do not conduct health examinations, except in critical moments of the diseases. To support these vulnerable women and communities, Diakonia Agapes sent a team of gynecologists and lab technicians to do health examinations where the women live.
On March 21, 2023 was organized a workshop in Gegë village and was attended by 17 women. All the women present were examined and 11 of them did the PAP test. The majority of the women examined have infections and this is due to the low level of personal hygiene. Also, the women stated that due to the low economic situation, they do not go to the doctor.
Patient J, 28 years old was married for 5 years and she wanted to get pregnant. She has never visited a doctor and she was not aware of the steps that she needs to follow to identify the reason why she was not getting pregnant. She did the health examination and the PAP test and was counseled to do the additional examination at a specialized clinic.
Patient F 34 ,years old did the health examination. She has genital lythes and she has done some visits to the hospital in the city. Unfortunately, the doctors have not provided the right information for the infection as well as they did not give the right treatment. The medical team made it possible to provide support and guided her to the next phase of treatment
Diakonia Agapes will continue to raise funds to support these vulnerable women and families to have good health through participating in the Little by Little campaign that will be organized from April 03-07, 2023. You are invited to contribute with your valuable donation to support women and their families. Make a difference in their lives!
