R.E.A.(Rete per l'Emancipazione Attiva) is a non for profit social enterprise for setting up an active network the Emancipation of Women during their reproductive life. It has been founded since the project idea has been awarded by the aPulia Region within the framework of PIN grants (Pugliesi Innovative) which supports innovative enterprises runned by young people.
R.E.A. was born from the dream to create a place that can represent a safe environment and a comfort zone for all women in the territory.
- The identified need: needs of women during their reproductive life are underestimated with unsatisfying services provided by the system. - The solution found: Creation of a space with different professionals for services tailored up on the needs of the female population.
Unfortunately we live in a context in which there is a lack of services offered by public Health System or they are not in line with the role of the woman in the Society. R.E.A. comes from here, trying to integrate or compensate some services, thanks to the creation of a network of professional figures able to offer services in order to improve and promote women and faimlies health during reproductive life. In particular, it will offer ad hoc services for adolescent girls, for waiting couples, for new families, for women with pelvic floor dysfunctions and in menopausal age.
The team of this amazing initiative is comped of: Donatella Musarò - Midwife. Project management and scientific supervision Luca Casciaro - Management and Networking coordination
