Early child development - a priority in the work of the National Network of Health Mediators (NMHM) for the next two years

NNHM logoCampaign logoSofia, March 9, 2021

On March 9, 2021, took place the first national forum “Gaps in Early Childhood Development Policies. Possible Solutions”, in which 4 national campaigns aimed at changing early childhood development policies were presented. One of the campaigns is the draft "Ordinance 26 in action - for more healthy babies and happy mothers". In drafting  it the National Network of Health Mediators (NMHM) cooperates with the Club of Non-Governmental Organizations - Targovishte, Association LARGO - Kyustendil and Association "Thirst for Life" - Sliven. The aim of the advocacy initiative is to achieve equal and effective access of pregnant women with no health insurance to health care - adequate follow-up of their pregnancies. At present, according to the current Ordinance №26 of 14.06.2007 of the Ministry of Health for providing obstetric care to uninsured women and for conducting lab testing outside the scope of compulsory health insurance for children and pregnant women, the uninsured pregnant woman is entitled to one a single examination with accompanying lab tests for the entire period of pregnancy. This single examination cannot guarantee the birth of a healthy baby, as it is not possible to prevent the various risks to the mother and child in the prenatal period. It is important for the problem to receive support from specialists, institutions, partners, but also from the general public. The communication component among the activities led by the NMHM will be aimed at this.

The National Network for Children launches the "Together for Children" movement

CampaignBulgaria, February 24, 2021

When you are little, it is important to have an adult on your side, because children are highly vulnerable and need protection. That is why it is necessary for each of us to stand behind the cause of our children to have a happy childhood.
The National Network for Children (NNC) has launched the Together for Children movement, which calls upon the whole society for responsible parenting and civic activism on children's issues. On the occasion of the upcoming March celebrations, special free bracelets will be disseminated among friends and partners in the country, made with a lot of love - as a symbol of care for children in Bulgaria.
Maybe someone will connect it with the traditional red thread against jinxing, and others with the Martenitsa, which we tie as a wish for health and luck on the wrists of our children, relatives and friends.

WinnersSofia, December 18, 2020
 
As always, in December it is time for the winners of the "Valya Krushkina - Journalism for the people" competition to be awarded. BFPA has supported the initiative since its inception. This has been happening for nine consecutive years, but for the first time not live - the Covid pandemic affected this significant event for the media and public environment. There are 4 categories - electronic media, writing journalist, filming journalist and journalist-hope. In addition, there is The Big Prize. The jury consists of seven members, all well-known names from various leading media in Bulgaria. The winners were chosen from 106 submitted materials. We all hope that next year the tenth anniversary edition of the competition will be live, and that we will put an end to the pandemic. For the first time we will mention who supported the event for the modest prize fund with the clear awareness that in these conditions there are not doing it for strong publicity, but only to support the cause - Bulgarian Society for Public Relations (BDVO), L'Occitane en Provence and Salon Olfactive.
Indeed, this year the competition faced a number of challenges due to the epidemic situation in the country, which was the reason for the official award ceremony to be canceled. However, this did not prevent nominations and winners from being announced, albeit in a slightly more unconventional format. All nominated materials were sent to the seven-member jury. These are journalists with proven experience and reputation in the field, namely:
1. Maria Cherneva, BNT
2. Rosen Tsvetkov, bTV
3. Silvia Velikova, BNR
4. Nikolina Dimitrova, Bulgaria ON AIR
5. Vladimir Yonchev, OFF News
6. Stoyana Georgieva, Mediapool

Start of a national campaign "Trafficking pregnant women to sell their newborns is a crime!"

Video thumbnailBulgaria, November 16, 2020

The National Commission for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings and the 10 Local Commissions in the country have launched a campaign to prevent trafficking in pregnant women in order to sell their newborn children. The campaign is run under the title "Trafficking pregnant women to sell their newborns is a crime!" and is implemented on the initiative and project of the Local Commission for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings in Burgas, Association "Equilibrium" and the Municipality of Burgas.
Unfortunately, this form of trafficking is specific to the Bulgarian context, and according to the official data of the Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Bulgaria, involvement in this type of trafficking is a very common form of crime in our country. The sale of babies from poor and especially socially isolated communities in Bulgaria is an increasingly used criminal way to tackle poverty. Through well-organized criminal groups and manipulators, young girls and women, mostly living in extreme poverty and illiteracy, give birth and sell their newborn children abroad.
