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.

Social and health messages in Roma neighbourhoods through theatre

Sofia, July 31, 2019

On the last day of July the Roma neighbourhood Fakulteta in Sofia was visited by William Shakespeare and Miguel de Servantes. We started with the best – Romeo and Juliet and Don Quixote. The Roma actress Natalia Tzekova staged a funny and educational performance with the participation of talented children and youth from the neighborhood in which the art was intertwined with social and health related messages. Romeo and Juliet demonstrated the benefits of family planning, contraception and health education and spoke in verse about the harm of school dropout, early marriages and children having children. The participants performed short sketches which contained the same messages, debunked myths and demonstrated how powerful personal example is. Don Quixote explained some of the community specificities which started a short discussion on stage who should take example from whom about health and health prevention. In between sketches and play scenes the participants shared their own personal stories about health and family planning. At the end of the play as a recap of what was presented they raised a few banners with messages on the same topic”: “I have dreams and goals”, “I am not an incubator for babies”, “Ask – someone will tell you”. The audience appreciated the messages and the element of humor in the sketches and play scenes.

The alumni of the first Health Education Academy graduated successfully

Sofia, June 17, 2019

Monday, June 17th. Our first alumni class of the Sofia Health Education Academy demonstrated their skills and knowledge in front of classmates, teachers, school directors, school psychologists, parents and supporting institutions. The solemn event took place in the Events Hall at 1st High school, Sofia. The young people from 1st, 144th, 119th schools, 1st ELS and the Professional School of Textile and Fashion Design split into three teams after “drawing straws” and presented the topics “Transformations During Puberty”, “Contraception and STIs” and “Prevention of addictions”. We are very glad that our video on puberty was part of the “fun”. Otherwise the presentations pushed the audience to participate actively. The culmination was a surprise for all – we were visited by the TV show “Masters of the air” who enhanced the effect of the challenge.
