Youth center on sexual health “I want to know” opened

Free gynecological check-ups and counseling on HIV/AIDS

The first Youth center on sexual and reproductive health “I want to know” was open last month in Skopje. It is designed for the marginalized groups of young people who have no social and health insurance and no easy approach to the health organizations. It was opened on the initiative of the Health Education and Research Organization – H.E.R.A. and the International Federation for Family Planning from Brussels, and supported by the Health Centre – Skopje. In several European countries there are youth centers of this kind, and one of the most distinguished examples is the Brook Centre in Great Britain. The Youth Centre will be opened from Monday to Friday in the period between 12.00 and 17.00. It is located at a specially adjusted part in the health center Vodno. It provides services that seek anonymity and high level of confidence. The need for such a separated,  confidential and free service is very big, since the HIV/AIDS is unstoppably growing worldwide. The goal of the project is to provide approach to the marginalized individuals and to influence their health habits. The Centre “I want to know” employs a team of experts who offer gynecological check-ups and counseling, free contraception and therapy and psychosocial counseling. It also provides consultations on sexual and reproductive health, education of students and teachers, free educational material, consultations and testing on HIV/AIDS, as well as an info-telephone line.

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?

Expeditio, Kotor, Montenegro
Our vision is a quality space for better life
We decided to make an unusual interview with three people, as they themselves are unusual, as well as the association they are members of. Aleksandra Kapetanovic, Biljana Gligorovic and Tatjana Rajic are three young architects, who dedicate their creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm to cultural heritage, architecture, spatial planning and the civic sector in Montenegro, particularly focused on Boka Kotorska and its surroundings.
Violeta Tanceva – Zlateva
My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
