An educational session on reproductive health, early births and early school dropouts

Educ. sessionSofia, May 9 2014

On May 8th BFPA’s consultant and health centre manager Daniela Dikova visited the “Ivan Bogorov” middle school N140 in Sofia. During an educational session in front of students, teachers and parents she gave a presentation on the risks for reproductive health coming from early marriages, and the risks of raising children by adolescents. The topics also included changes during puberty, contraception methods, as well as some of the sexually transmitted infections.

The main concern of the pupils was whether masturbation is normal, can one get pregnant before their first menstruation, and which are the most effective methods of contraception. The teachers requested additional information about the NPV and HIV viruses and were especially interested to know whether the HPV vaccine could be harmful to health.

BFPA’s short films “Emi and Ani” and “Two Little Girls” were presented as an addition to the discussion about the Roma early school dropouts and early marriages, and they also provoked a discussion on the potential dangers of inexperienced girls falling victims to human trafficking.

Most significant change: Documenting stories

Dolna Banya, January 24-26, 2020

On January 26-28 BFPA organized a meeting of the teams working on the project „My body, my rights” from Sofia, Yambol and Montana. Representatives of the three locations shared their experiences from the implemented field activities. We discussed problems which health mediators, self-help group members and their partners face and paid special attention on possible ways and strategies for solving. Participants put accent on good practices that had been identified up to the moment. It was the perfect time to watch and discuss several videos, showing the fieldwork as well as image “memes” with messages, which show benefits of family planning.
Participants gave feedback also for the freshly prepared Manual for self-support groups and for the Health application for mobile devices, which will be useful in the future work on the project and after its ending. Divided into groups by locations the participants from Sofia, Yambol and Montana worked on possible ways of documenting stories for the most significant change of people’s lives as result of the work of project teams and health specialists.
