#idecide #АЗрешавам

The Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) supports the efforts of the global campaign #IDecide for equitable access of all girls and women to health care and services of family planning.
 
• Early births make the girls dropping out of school and extremely limit their chances for a better life.
• Every woman has the right to know how to keep her reproductive health and to decide how to plan her family.
• Poverty without education reproduces poverty.
• Let’s make possible people from vulnerable communities to have access to information and family planning services.
 
The initiative of BFPA includes young people from five towns in the country – Sofia, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora, Pleven and Ruse – so that to make possible the messages of the campaign to reach more people in Bulgaria.

The Global Initiative I Decide is being implemented in the month of May 2017

 In 2017, 85 million women and girls will be forced into pregnancy because they’re denied contraceptive care – that’s everyone in Germany being pregnant at the same time.
 Every government can give every woman the contraceptive care she needs for less than $2 a month.
 Forced pregnancy will kill more than 300,000 women in 2017 – that’s the entire population of Venice.
 If you’re poor, by being denied contraceptive care – you’re five times more likely to be forced into pregnancy.
