THE BARBADOS FAMILY PLANNING ASSOCIATION walked away with a first-of-its-kind award that brought with it a cash prize of $25 000 and an international accreditation.

The announcement came from president Jefferson Kirton yesterday at a Press conference at the association's headquarters Bay Street, St Michael.

Referring to the International Planned Parenthood Federation's regional council meeting in Cartagena, Colombia, last Saturday, he said that "coming out of the regional council meeting, we luckily received a west wing award for outstanding achievement in the area of safe abortion/termination.

Executive director George Griffith said that to achieve this accreditation the association had to modernise its operations "to make it more transparent and accountable to ensure there was full compliance with international standards. That was a major achievement," he added. (TM)
