For women’s rights

MaterialsThroughout the country, March 8, 2018

BFPA starts a campaign with coffee fortune slips in the month of March. The campaign provokes people to think on the relevance every woman and girl to have equal access to family planning information and services.

• Ensure stable future for yourself, in order your children to have bright future;
• You can make the choice to be happy;
• Health, happiness, knowledge, comfort…;
• Children are not expected to give birth to children! Let’s support the most vulnerable;
• Early pregnancy is risky for the health, the life and the professional realization. Everyone must have the right to make a choice;
• We can’t change the whole world at once, but we can start with something small, changing the life of thousands;
• All children have potential; let’s give them the chance to develop it.

The initiative of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association is realized in several popular cafes with the contribution of young people from Stara Zagora, Pleven, Ruse, Vratsa and Plovdiv and thus makes possible the messages of the campaign to reach more people in Bulgaria. The action is a part of the global efforts to end early school dropouts, for the right of everyone to preserve its reproductive health, for the rights of women to education, health services, equal opportunities and better life. Because knowledge is power and poverty without education reproduces poverty.

Global campaign #idecide #АЗрешавам

Every government can give every woman the contraceptive care she needs for less than $2 a month. If you’re poor, by being denied contraceptive care – you’re five times more likely to be forced into pregnancy.

IN MEMORIAM

Todor Chernev, 1945-2018

For the Management board, staff, volunteers and supporters of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) it is a great sadness to share that the first (and only so far) Honorary President of BFPA Professor Todor Chernev passed away on June 4 2018  the age of 72. He was one of the most outstanding gynecologists in the country, with many awards and achievements, including the national “Golden Hands” award. Besides all his different duties and important causes he was supporting, the Professor , as we called him was one of the founders of BFPA and was President of its Management Board for more than a decade. Professor Chernev remained a reproductive health consultant of our clinic in Sofia for almost 25 years and was active in the work for providing access to health services for underserved and vulnerable groups. He will be missed a lot by his wife, two sons, granddaughter, relatives and friends. The short video below reflects just part of his initiatives and successes. RIP! You will be remembered.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              

             

 

 

 
Training of Trainers on Health Education

Sofia, May 18-19, 2018

The Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) conducted on May 18-19, 2018 the first for this year training of trainers on health and sexuality education „About the Shared Knowledge”. High school students from 8th to 11th grade from Sofia, Pleven, Plovdiv, Ruse, Stara Zagora, Troyan and Gorna Oryahovitza were introduced to topics connected with prevention of reproductive health and effective ways for delivering health messages to their peers.
The participants were from schools with different profile – entrepreneurship, math, natural science, informatics, humanities…,  and what united them was the expectation to gain new knowledge and make new friends. „How can one understand that he/she is suffering from Syphilis?”, „Which of the sources of information are credible?” and „Is it possible an person living with HIV to have life expectancy as long as an uninfected one?” – were  some of the questions during the sessions.
