CONDOM WITH A CAUSE*THINK WITH YOUR HEAD

Logo_KKCONDOM WITH A CAUSE * THINK WITH YOUR HEAD is a campaign for responsible sexual behavior of Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association and SEXWELL condoms.

The medical center of BFPA was one of the places making for years free VCT (Voluntary counseling and testing) HIV testing and counseling on a programme financed by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The Fund is withdrawing from the country, but many people still continue to come and request to be tested, and for many of them is of importance if this to be for free – so we are looking for opportunities to continue implementing the acivity. Together with SEXWELL we decided that we could help people in need to look preserve their health.

With the funds raised on this mutual campaign we will give opportunity for free HIV and other STIs testing and counseling to people in need. The campaign is supported by the Bulgarian Center for Not-for profit Law (BCNL) and is part of its program to support fund-generating activities of NGOs.

Both BFPA and SEXWELL believe that sexuality and pleasant intimate experience are important for everyone and that health is priceless. And we are convinced that both can go hand in hand!

By buying a package of 30 SEXWELL condoms with a cause you donate 2 BGN for ensuring free VCT for HIV and other STIs for people in need and support:

  •     Socially disadvantaged people
  •     Students and other young people
  •     People from vulnerable communities
     

The packages can be found in the company’s SEXWELL stores, online at sexwell.bg, as well as in the REMEDIUM pharmacies.

                                                                  

"Condom with a Cause" currently presents important knowledge on prevention of sexually transmitted infections via interviews with different medical specialists, as well of people supporting the idea. "Think with your Head" and "Health is Priceless" are the main messages of the campaign. Partners of the initiative are the web platform LOVEGUIDE and BFPA volunteers.

The first module of the Sofia Academy for peer educators was finalized successfully

Lozen, February 4-6, 2019

3,2,1, GO! The “Health Education” Youth Academy is officially under way. On February 4th at the Bulgarian Red Cross’s training and logistics center in the village of Lozen young people from 5 schools in Sofia (1st Secondary school, 1st ELS, 144th Secondary school, 119th Secondary school and the PSTFD) and their school councils began their education on topics vital for growing up, such as: changes during puberty, menstruation, sexually transmitted and blood-transmitted infections, prevention of HIV, family planning and contraception, sexual and reproductive health, addictions prevention, etc. The initiative relies on the method that has proven itself most successful with time – peer education. The Academy trainees will learn how to create and disseminate specific to the auditorium health messages, how to be most convincing in their communication with their class- and schoolmates and which interactive methods they could use when sharing knowledge – all this in three educational modules after which there will be a public presentation of the acquired knowledge and perceived skills. The team of young people from the 35th secondary school will join them in the second module, having already passed the first one.
