The breast examinations made with mobile mammography units have shown
that there are 10 in 1000 women in average who have been diagnosed with
this disease. Many of them have learned about it on time and have
started treatment without allowing it to advance.
The Health Minister, Ilir Beqaj, monitored the mobile unit in Kucova and guaranteed that this service will be offered in the farthest provinces.
“Our purpose is to prevent diseases and protect our population. Citizens are being offered free examinations even in the farthest habitations”, Beqaj declared.
600 women are examined every month. The mobile units have been in Gjirokaster, Erseka, Permet, and will travel to all health care units of the country to offer this free examination, Beqaj declared.
