Jamaica Family Planning Association (FAMPLAN)
FAMPLAN pioneered family planning in Jamaica in 1957. It responds to the demand for sexual and reproductive health services, particularly among vulnerable communities, by providing a full range of services that include contraceptives, gynecological care, Pap tests, pregnancy tests, HIV and STI prevention and screening, breast exams, gender-based violence screening and referrals, vasectomy, post-abortion counseling, and pre- and post-natal care.
FAMPLAN is a major advocate of school-based comprehensive sexuality education and the need for health professionals to understand and support youth-friendly services. It also works to increase gender equality and teaches women safer sex negotiation skills to help them assert their right to refuse unsafe sex.
