Belize Family Life Association (BFLA)
BFLA is the only organization in Belize that focuses exclusively on sexual and reproductive health. It manages nine clinics that provide general health services in addition to gynecological care, Pap smears, pregnancy tests, abortion services, pre- and post-natal services, child immunization, STI and HIV testing, counseling, and referrals. The outreach program runs from four mobile clinics, which offer family planning information and services in areas that are not easily accessible and need education and services.
BFLA is developing a reputation as a national leader in shaping youth-friendly services. Their program provides health services in a youth-friendly space and relies on peer educators to do outreach activities in schools. BFLA focuses much of its efforts on addressing the sexual and reproductive health needs of a wide range of young people, including incarcerated youth, sex workers, and LGBTQ youth. It trains volunteers, health personnel, teachers, pharmacists, and community leaders to educate teenagers in and out of school. BFLA has 150 trained peer educators who provide support to youth in 12 schools.
