Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association
The Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) focuses on advocacy, and on information and education activities for the whole community, but with a particular emphasis on young people.
The organization runs comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care clinics in Sofia and other cities. The clinics function as training centres for health personnel and social workers. BFPA is working in close partnership with the government on a project designed to extend these facilities to other parts of the country.
Sex education sessions for 14-19 year-olds, and training courses for teachers are key parts of BFPA’s activity, as is peer counselling. Programmes have been adapted to reach marginalized young people, particularly in the Roma community.
