Обучения за ХИВ в 8 училища на страна

There are no translations available.

  В рамките на проекта SUNFLOWER между 6 и 15 ноември бяха проведени повече от 15 обучения за подрастващи по теми, свързани с ХИВ, хепатит В и С. Инициативата се проведе в градовете София, Варна и Русе. Освен здравно-информативния си характер, дейността имаше за цел да замери доколко младите хора научават за тези заболявания чрез обучителните сесии. Замерването стана с разпространение на еднотипни въпросници преди самото събитие и непосредствено след това. Общият брой предварително попълнени въпросници бе 169, от които 59% момичета. Възрастта на участниците в събитията бе между 14 и 17 години (от тях 63% на 15 годишна възраст).

Сравнението на резултатите между входящите и изходящите въпросници показа подобряване на информираността на младите хора, особено що се отнася до начините на предаване на ХИВ. Предвид на това, че повишената информираност има временен характер, БАСП възнамерява да проведе следващо замерване със същите участници през месец февруари 2011 г.

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.

Break the Silence: Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Violence of Children Could Happen Everywhere

Sofia, November 18, 2020

Break the Silence: November 18 is the European Day on protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual violence.
The first thing that comes to mind when we hear ‘sexual exploitation’ is usually connected with red lanterns, streets or roads with women (and men) sex workers, trafficking of human beings. Sexual exploitation of children could have also other faces – sex services in exchange of expensive things such as smart phone or modern accessory or at the cost of a lunch, sweets or instead of rent for parents’ accommodation. It can happen via internet and to affect minors before they become teenagers. That’s why it is needed to break the silence and to ask for zero tolerance concerning this ugly phenomenon. Statistics show that one of five children becomes victim of violence, including sexual. As parents we can prevent this: we can teach them for instance on the Rule of the Bathing Suit. It says that no one has the right to touch their body, especially where the body is covered by a swimming bathing suit. Medical examinations and manipulations as well don’t have to be allowed without their informed consent. The rule helps children to understand that their bodies are their own, that there is good and bad touching, as well es personal borders and social ethnic norms.
