  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.

Special guests during the event were the Executive Director of ‘St. Sofia’ First OB Hospital Dr. Gergana Kolarova and the coordinator of BFPA in Pleven Dr. Krasimir Romanov. The priceless opportunity to have a direct dialog with Dr. Kolarova was highly appreciated by the team in Sofia and gave them the possibility to adjust the field efforts and optimize the collaboration with the hospital in the field of family planning.
Topics of the discussions during the three-day meeting were: what examinations to be done during the pregnancy and what is doing the gynecologist in the different stages; what are the benefits from health insurances; how much does it cost and how to recover health insurance rights; the benefits of visualization for understanding the information. Short educational films, developed to help the work at local level, were presented.
The work during the three days with health mediators and other colleagues working on the field from Montana, Sofia and Yambol included discussing the progress currently made and future activities trill the project end.
In the crisis months from the beginning of the year two tenth graders from Yambol were close to drop out from school due to the death of their parents, but the project team supported them and the boys will finish their secondary education. Two of the girls, trained on the project this year will be studying pedagogy in Veliko Tarnovo University.

 
The Learning action partnership was introduced to Safenet’s Cyber Scout Programme

Sofia, August 24, 2020

“I’m a 15-year old boy, in the ninth grade. Recently I met a girl in the social networks. After chatting a few days in Skype, we turned on cameras, send saucy pictures…. Now it transpires the girl is not a girl at all, I was recorded and being blackmailed, for money, for more pictures, otherwise the recordings will be made widely public. What do I do to get out of this situation?”
Another case:
“I’m in the sixth grade. A classmate who is a Facebook friend of our history teacher downloaded her picture and made her a professional profile in a porn site. What do I do, how do I react?”
The two cases are just a small part of the one-day training on the Cyber Scout programme for internet safety and online security for the members of the Learning action partnership (LAP). We talked about online bullying, online sexual exploitation, about the ways we should react, what rules apply, what is allowed and effective… We review different cases – from a threat from a pedophile regarding the security of a child to an innocent at first exchange between friends which escalates to online harassment that can have serious and long-term consequences for the victim’s life and mentality.
