Running projectsCurrent projects of BFPA  

The programme portfolio of BFPA for 2017 includes various and interesting projects mainly targeting the strategic drivers that are a priority both for BFPA and IPPF:
- advocacy for the rights of vulnerable groups, international development (ODA) and social campaigns
- improving the access to quality health care services in the field of SRHR and prevention of HIV/AIDS and STI
- work with adolescents, health and sexuality education
-  resources mobilization and sustainability
In the beginning of 2017 the organization was for a third time subject of accreditation as part of which was revised the strategic plan for the period 2016 – 2020. In 2017 BFPA already works on four strategic drivers that united and enriched the five Ás strategic areas the organization was focusing on in the last years.
BFPA in its role of expert and innovator is enlarging its target groups and is a role model and expert for many national and international institutions. Here are enumerated the most relevant projects of the association, in process of implementation at the beginning of 2017. We are certain that there will be more added within this year. We are presenting the projects with the funding institutions and their duration:

The Shared Knowledge. Peer to Peer Training of Trainers, part three

Varshetz, 15-16 June, 2017

Third, last part of the peer education for this scholar year. One of the exercises made was via brainstorming the participants to give examples for social norms – one good and one bad or outlived its time. The young people concluded that the social norms actually have a mutual root with our prejudices. „Run away from here, shorty” – said the pharmacist when teenagers want to buy condoms; when you have older sister or brother and you have to listen to her/him just because they are older, when you say to boys “Do not behave like a girl, it is male stuff” – are a small part of the given as examples of bad social norms. The handshake of athletes at the end of the match; reading in public places when you are alone, to smile while saying Hi, to collect your dog’s poo - are part of the examples of good standards.
