Annual meeting of the National Network of Health Mediators

DiplomasGroup photoSofia, October 17-18  2014

An event that BFPA supports and active part in which its representatives Dr. Radosveta Stamenkova and Ventzislav Kirkov are taking annually. It's a time when every year health mediators from all over the country, Roma medical students, supporters, trainers, institution reprsentatives and international organization representatives are gathered in one place. A very important moment - for organizational questions, sharinfg what is going well and where things are not moving so well, to thank the ones that excel - with excellent grades as students, as volunteers after the floods in Varna, Dobrich and Miziya. Unfortunately, BFPA with the support of NNHM is the only institution in the country which supplies with contraceptives - mostly IUDs - poor people and people without health insurance. The biggest joya and surprise was the significantly increased number of Roma health mediators that have applied and are already students in different fields - from social studies to engineering... One of the most rewarding things in life is to see the point of your work and to receive proof that despite the difficulties and institutional red tape and obstacles, what you are trying to achieve is possible and good!
