SIFTY, z.s.

Sifty is an organization dedicated to health education and prevention. We process health-related data backed by research, write articles, and create understandable infographics. We give lectures at high schools and actively disseminate education through social media. #StoriesAbout emerged as an important project that evolved from our work over time.


The first section on "Stories About Cancer" delves into the issue of cancer, which unfortunately affects every third citizen of the Czech Republic. Therefore, we are confident that this topic concerns each of us, whether from the perspective of a patient or a loved one.

The feedback on social media, from our close surroundings, and our own desire prompted us to write the first book titled "Stories About Cancer." The book accompanies oncology patients and their loved ones in a challenging phase of life and, through guides or personal stories, shows how to better cope with this disease.



The next topic we are addressing is "Stories About Fertility," where we will explore the complex issue of fertility through your stories. Lastly, together on social media, we will learn everything related to fertility—from how our reproductive organs function, through artificial insemination, to contraception.

Thank you for the trust
