Изследване за и против въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт в България

There are no translations available.

През ноември 2010 г. БАСП проведе анкета сред водещите акушер-гинеколози в България с цел да замери отношението им към медикаментозния аборт. Идеята е, че употребата на медикаменти намалява силно психологическия стрес при жената от извършването на хирургическа интервенция, но също така биха могли да бъдат наблюдавани и някои нежелани реакции.

Бяха анкетирани 144 АГ специалисти и проведени 10 дълбочинни интервюта. Резултатите от анкетите сочат, че повечето от анкетираните имат сравнително добра информация за начина на действие, положителните и отрицателните страни при употребата на медикаментозен аборт - 53,5%. При 32,6% АГ специалистите следят редовно научни публикации по въпроса и смятат, че са напълно запознати с въпроса. Откъслечна информация имат 8,3% от анкетираните, а никаква информация - едва 5,6%.

На въпрос биха ли използвали медикаментозен аборт в тяхната практика, голяма част от анкетираните биха го предпочели. Основните причини за това са, че този метод е щадящ за жената, има по-нисък риск от последващ стерилитет и това, че може да бъде ползван в ранен етап от бременността. Заедно с това обаче, се посочват и някои негативни страни при ползването на медикаментозен аборт (при 52 АГ специалисти или малко над 36%) като това, че липсва достатъчна медицинска практика у нас, не са наясно със страничните ефекти и дори със самата методология при извършването на медикаментозен аборт.

Като цяло АГ специалистите са за въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт в България (101 от анкетираните), а 12 са против и 31 се колебаят. Различните срезове от анкетата показват, че тези, които имат по-малко информация се колебаят дали е необходимо въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт, но тези, които следят редовно научни публикации са категорично за.

End inequality. End AIDS

Bulgaria, December 1, 2021

For yet another year, the international community celebrates December 1 - World AIDS Day. This year it is entitled "End inequality. End AIDS"
On December 1, 2021, the WHO calls upon world leaders and citizens to unite against inequalities and reach out to people who do not currently receive basic HIV services. Forty years after the first cases were reported, HIV still threatens the world. Separation, inequality and disregard for human rights have allowed HIV to become and remain a global health crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates inequalities and difficulties in health care delivery, a challenge for many people living with HIV.
According to the WHO, nearly 38 million people worldwide live with HIV/AIDS, with the number of newly infected people in 2020 being 1.5 million and the number of deaths being 680,000. Globally, in 2020, nearly 73% of those infected receive antiretroviral therapy. In Bulgaria, a total of 1,936 people with HIV are being followed up in the HIV / AIDS treatment sectors, and 1,910 (99%) of them are receiving antiretroviral therapy. In our country treatment is free for all people in need, regardless of their health insurance status. The therapy prolongs and improve quality of the of PLHIV and improves their quality of life. Bulgaria remains a country with low HIV prevalence - the frequency of newly registered cases of HIV infection per 100 thousand population for Bulgaria is 2.9 in 2020, and for comparison - the average for EU countries is 3.3.
