Focus: Bulgaria
Key conclusions and recommendations

Barometer of Women’s Access to Modern Contraceptive Choice in 10 EU Countries is the name of the survey that was presented in the European Parliament in June 2013. BFPA translated in Bulgarian and published the survey around 26 September - the World Contraception Day.

 

 

  Contraception

 Family planning, reproductive health and contraception

It is based on a qualitative analysis of behavioural models and cultural norms which influence the access and use of contraception in seven selected countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Armenia, Bosnia and Hertzegovina, Bulgaria, Macedoniq, Serbia, Azerbaidjan and Kazakhstan.
Detailed data was gathered on the models and factors that define the use of family planning methods, reproductive health and contraceptive supply, including information of their availability which helps or hinders contraceptives use. The analysis includes an overview of key documents, legal framework and studies on behavioural and cultural attitudes towards contraceptive use in the region.

Reproductive attitudes

 

Reproductive attitudes and behaviour in Bulgaria

It is a sociological survey, representative for the country, achieved thanks to the efforts of BFPA and UNFPA which include argumentation, organizational activities, searching for funding and supporters so that in Bulgaria there is data and information from which it is visible what the reproductive attitudes and behaviour of Bulgaria's population. Such a survey hasn't been done since 1996 - more than 15 yeras ago. In neighbouring, and also in farther away states that are not EU-members, a number of serious national surveys have been conducted, that present up-to-date and adequate data. Now we have them too, for which we thank prof. Maia Grekova who conducted the research and did the analysis. The field work on a national scale was done by the Alpha Research agency.

The research looks into the reasons for stigma and discrimination, for the personal stigma among the people living with HIV, and into some aspects of sexual practices and attitudes.

In accordance with some of the conclusions from this research an analysis was made of the health and social legislation in relation to people living with HIV.

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.
