Participants shared about difficulties and good practices of their work by places.

Participants day 2It became clear that the future work connected with the continuation of providing health services in these communities couldn’t be implemented without the partnership of municipalities and the identified on project community leaders and groups of self-support. BFPA and NNHM will be available to support local teams in their efforts of looking for financing and implementing the future work on providing health services in the project locations. The team proposes different strategies and approaches - providing mobile services, subsidized by the municipalities, and elaborating health strategies with plans of action are just two of the options to be adapted to local conditions. 
Among the main difficulties to overcome in the process of implementing the activities were: lack of realizing the importance of taking care of one’s own health status and building confidential relationships between patients and specialists providing health services by locations. The final meeting on the initiative ‘Mission Possible: better sexual and reproductive health for young people from vulnerable communities – ways of overcoming health inequalities’ is to take place on 20 April 2017 in Sofia.

The benefits of having a young intern for a week

Sofia, October 1-5, 2018

During the week from October 1st to October 5th Lina Fadl, a 15 year old schoolgirl from the Victor Hugo French Lycee in Sofia took her internship with us at BFPA’s Sofia office. In the photo Lina is with her back to the camera, since she doesn’t like to be photographed, but her Biology teacher, who visited us to see how things are happening, can be seen well. It was a great joy for our team to be reinforced by someone with a fresh outlook and thinking. As always in such cases, the benefits were mutual – Lina learned from us how is functioning of a non-government organization, how to elaborate project proposals,  how to budget and report them, how to go on when your project proposal isn’t approved, why a Pap-smear is important, why besides HIV testing, counseling and support for people coming in for VCT is especially important, how and why to use educational playing cards, which other organizations are working in the field of education and healthcare, what socially responsible business means, and much more.
