Asociación Pro-bienestar de la Familia Nicaraguense (PROFAMILIA)
Profamilia is the largest NGO providing sexual and reproductive health in Nicaragua. It operates 18 clinics nationwide and offers a full range of services that include gynecological care, contraceptives, screening for gender-based violence, and HIV and STI prevention, testing, and treatment. It also operates mobile health unites that bring vital services to poor and isolated rural communities.
Profamilia’s HIV prevention work focuses on reaching the most vulnerable groups—sex workers, MSM, and transgender people—and increasing the quality of services offered by health care providers. To address high adolescent pregnancy rates, it has also undertaken a series of activities to dispel myths and educate young people about sexual and reproductive health. As a member of the Mesoamerican Coalition, Profamilia carries out national advocacy projects promoting comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly services. Although abortion is illegal in Nicaragua, Profamilia is strongly pro-choice.
