Serbia Trip Report

From October 1st until October 8th, we traveled through Serbia and Republika Srpska. The primary objective of our trip was to identify new projects for 2018. We also wanted to investigate the current standard of care and diagnostic options for breast cancer screening and mobile mammogram, given that Serbia has the highest breast cancer mortality rate in Europe. Additionally, for the first time, we visited a few Health Centers and Hospitals in Republika Srpska (Višegrad, Gradiška, Prijedor).
