Program “We are here for you”

Through the program “We are here for you”, the Counseling Center for Women with Breast Cancer “Jefimija” has been providing access to psychosocial, health and experiential non-institutional support to women diagnosed with breasts and their families in the Zlatibor district for the fourth year in a row.

The program is implemented through sets of experiential, psychological and health support activities, as well as media promotion that contributes to breaking down prejudices and aims to better understand and increase motivation for preventive examinations and response to breast cancer screening. For now, the program includes women diagnosed with breast cancer who live in the municipalities of Nova Varos, Prijepolje and, indirectly, Priboj.

During the spring of 2021, 2 sets of activities were held in Nova Varoš and Prijepolje, in which 50 women with a diagnosis of breast cancer participated. By the end of the year, in the autumn terms, two more sets of activities are planned in each of these cities.

The Municipality of Nova Varos, as well as the Prijepolje Youth Office, support the activities of “Jefimija”, and TV Forum from Prijepolje, TV Priboj and Radio Zlatar from Nova Varos follow and support all activities of the Counseling Center throughout the year.
