First activities within the project “Vaccines need your help” have been implemented. Delegation of the Development Center for Youth, led by the project coordinator Aleksandra Knežević, visited Raska and on that occasion held the first meeting with the representative of the Municipal Administration, Đorđe Radoiči. Focus was on the dynamics and preparation for the next activities of the project, primarily in terms of preparation and implementation of a targeted online campaign for young people and the implementation of educational and informational tribunes in two local high schools. Agreements on the realization of the tribunes also included a discussion on the essential issues for discussion with high school students on the topic of immunization, as well as on the methodological approach that will be used during the mentioned events.
Representatives of the Development Center for Youth and the Municipal Administration of Raška visited the Health Center, as one of the primary beneficiaries of the project, where they met with the director, Dr. Milisav Galjak, and also handed over medical equipment and protective equipment intended for this institution.
Events were also covered by TV KC: N Raška, that ensured that the general public was informed about the activities and goals of the project, once again drawing attention to the importance of immunization of all categories of the population. With this, the project was officially launched in media, and preparatory activities related to the continuation of the campaign and promotion of the topic were realized.
Next week, we will return to Raška, in order to continue working towards fulfilling the goal – a greater response of young people when it comes to immunization, and ultimately – a better epidemiological situation in the municipality of Raška.
