Some of the specific aims include establishing cooperation on health and social assistance issues in cross-border projects; cooperation and networking on health and social welfare issues; recording and classifying cross-border medical data of mutual interest with the help of ICT; prevention and early diagnosis of diseases of the musculoskeletal and musculoskeletal system by opening centers for health prevention and prevention of spinal distortions, discopathies, joint degenerative and occupational diseases;Our organization has experience in cross-border initiatives communicating informally with similar organizations from Macedonia and Greece; sharing experience and practice, consulting cases. Foundation “Health Prophylaxis” raises funds through charitable campaigns for prevention, rehabilitation and restoration of a number of diseases to needy children and youth. Works for socialization, integration and professional development of children and youth with disabilities. In recent years there has been a boom among people who have had severe strokes, heart attacks and other diseases such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, polio and operations. They all lead to very serious consequences for the patient and for his family. The recovery period is very long and painful. A very important condition for full recovery of the patient is not only performed treatment, but subsequent rehabilitation. Neglect of rehabilitation and kinesitherapeutic activity in all areas of medicine have a detrimental character for patients. Organised donation campaigns with our partners aimed at raising funds for children in need – our patients – from daily physical therapy and rehabilitation. To be able to recover fully to integrate into society, to have a normal life, full of smiles!
We implement this project based on previous experiences, practices and professional capacity of its members. We have implemented a variety of projects related to tourism and health. Some of them include, Time@Net, a European project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ program with key action cooperation and innovation on good practice to promote social inclusion and inclusion, active citizenship and learning participation among young people with intellectual disabilities. The project included public and private institutions in the field of education, social, training, research and working areas for inclusion with significant skills and experience. Another project that we have implemented is the “Cross-border training initiative in the field of health rehabilitation” funded project from the IPA Cross-border Program, CCI number 2007CB16IPO007. Besides those projects, we have implemented a variety of other projects since the existence of the organization. Our members include highly qualified professionals in their respective fields. The foreseen activities reflect one of our major goals, attracting tourists and offering alternatives to local communities to unleash the tourist potential in the priority regions. In this manner, we will combine health and tourism activities in order to achieve our aim and thus the objectives of the Programme in general
