This is a positive and proactive step to the fight against cancer, highlighting that solutions do exist across the continuum of cancer, and that they are within our reach.

Also, using this workshop to persuade non-Polish women to attend cancer screening and examination in Poland as they can benefit from useful medical examination as Polish citizens on the conditions that they have fulfilled all necessary health insurance policy requirements.
