Woman Health

Sexual and reproductive health services have been provided for women through the Women’s Health Program. The program aims at empowering women to access their sexual and reproductive health rights and enhancing their involvement in community activities. The program pursues its objectives through active community participation with a special focus on women as agents of change. The program includes specialized services such as early detection of diseases, especially breast cancer and cervical cancer, as well as health awareness and education activities.

The program has organized women’s health days and training workshops on legal and rights aspects of life and health. HWC is a member of many women organizations and national coalitions. In addition to commemorating International Women’s Day, HWC has played a pivotal role in the National Campaign against Violence. Also it is active in the National Forum against Violence against Women and the Arabic Women’s Network “Rua’a”. Moreover, it is an active member in the Regional Social Forum “Joussour” in order to enhance women involvement in social life.
