History

The Barbados Family Planning Association [BFPA], was established in May 1954 and Incorporated by an Act of Parliament in June 1967. The Association via a  Human and Sexual rights approach provides Sexual and Reproductive Health information, clinical services, education, training, community outreach and research.

 

The BFPA has always focused on the most vulnerable whether it was women and their rights such as access to Sexual and Reproductive Health services; or the poor, disempowered and vulnerable whose rights to access have always been easy to infringe. And thirdly to provide essential services to key populations such as Youth, Sex workers, Lesbian Gays Bi-Sexual and Transgender Communities. Our clinic welcomes people from all walks-of-life.
