Booklet BG 

On vaccines and vaccinations

The main goal of the present manual is to arm with basic knowledge on vaccines health specialists – RHI experts, general practitioners, pediatricians, medical students, nurses, health mediators – about vaccines in general and also specifically about mandatory vaccinations.  Recommendatory vaccines have also been mentioned – like the flu vaccines, the cervical cancer vaccine, the rotavirus vaccine. The attention is also drawn to vaccinations when travelling (Hepatitis A vaccine) due to the increasing trips of Bulgarian citizens to exotic destinations, to which their immune system is unaccustomed.
With this issue the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association hopes to answer the multitude of questions posed by parents, teachers, NGO representatives, media, and other helping professions specialists about the benefits, effects and tolerance towards modern vaccines.

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.
