For over 8 years our innovative project has promoted intercultural dialogue through its collaborative nature, allowing an open and respectful exchange between scientists and physicians from the Republic of Austria and their colleagues at institutions in Yogyakarta and Yogyakarta Province, Indonesia. These fruitful interactions between individual doctors, scientists and many other healthcare professionals, all from different cultural backgrounds, groups and organisations have led to a deep understanding of diverse practices and perspectives. This process has fostered mutual understanding and has been the driving force for the great achievements. In particular in the field of Women’s Health and in the field of prevention and early diagnosis of cancer the difference this project has made in an underserved area in the developing world has been demonstrable. We hope that it will also have a sustainable effect on Women’s Health and Global Citizenship Education in the future.
