Antigua Planned Parenthood Association

APPA has been pioneering family planning in Antigua & Barbuda since 1970. Today, it continues to meet the demand for sexual and reproductive health services—particularly among vulnerable communities—by providing a full range of services that include contraceptives, gynecological care, pregnancy tests, breast exams, and pre- and post-abortion counseling. APPA continues to strengthen the efforts to mainstream the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services to members of various marginalized communities in Antigua, inclusive of Migrants, Sex Workers, and members of the LGBTQ communities. Through the execution of this project, the Association was able to reach segments of the society not previously reached. APPA has played a key role in making sexual and reproductive health services available to all residents of Antigua & Barbuda. APPA is a major advocate of school-based comprehensive sexuality education and the need for health professionals to embrace youth-friendly services. The association’s school program equips young people with the knowledge and resources to make informed choices as well as to avoid unintended pregnancy. It also empowers adolescents to take responsibility for their choices and their lives.

Dominica Planned Parenthood Association

Founded in 1976, the Dominica Planned Parenthood Association (DPPA) focused on providing information and education to support the government’s clinical service delivery programme in its early years. It began delivering contraceptive services in response to the significant contraceptive needs of Dominicans (particularly among adolescents), and the staffing constraints of the government programme. As a result, people could be sure of at least one inexpensive, private outlet where their family planning needs could be fully met. DPPA’s clinic is located the centre of the capital city and provides a range of services including family planning, pregnancy tests, family counselling and PAP smear screening. There’s an established community outreach programme which provides family planning through volunteers and shop owners, and an extensive programme of information and education activities. These include distributing pamphlets and posters, broadcasting short talks about family planning on radio and television and conducting community discussions. The negative effects of Dominca’s high adolescent pregnancy rate are aggravated by local practices that force pregnant girls to drop out of school permanently. To reach young people, DPPA provides sexuality and life skills education in secondary schools and to adolescents outside the school system through rap sessions, lectures, discussions and films. DPPA has also established an Under 20 Club, a teen group that trains its members as peer educators.
