ADVOCACY

WHY WE ADVOCATE

At the BFPA we believe that Sexual Rights are Human Rights and therefore we advocate for the Sexual reproductive and sexual health and rights of everybody in every family, additionally we advocated on behalf of all groups  who are marginalised and vulnerable.

At the BFPA we believe that everyone should:

  • have the right to make informed choices that suit there wants and needs about Sexual and Reproductive Health without harm and threat.

  • That all have equal rights and should be free from all forms of discrimination and harm based on sex, sexuality and gender

  • be able to choose whether when or if they want to have children

  • Human beings are sexual beings and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights is the all-encompassing cross-cutting issue across all aspects of life.

The BFPA’s work has a particular focus on improving reproductive and sexual health outcomes for all people especially the poor; the marginalised; the disenfranchised, women and young girls who have been hindered by archaic gender and social norms, key populations, the differently abled; and men and boys; adolescent access to healthcare and lastly access to Comprehensive Sexuality Education for all within and out of schools. We are committed to long term capacity building to address Sexual and Reproductive health needs in Barbados, and we work increasingly in the region to advocate for improved outcomes in Caribbean and Latin America, and Internationally.
