THE BARBADOS FAMILY PLANNING ASSOCIATION (BFPA) says it is relying less on a Government subsidy partly because of revenue growth from its sexual health services.
“For the last three years with the slight increase in some services and with different grants and donations that we received under the new executive director Juliette Bynoe-Sutherland, we have not had to rely that heavily on the subvention from Government, and where we were recognising losses, that deficit has been reduced considerably,” president Ruth Phillips said yesterday.
In addition, she said loan repayments were coming to an end, leading to “some financial sweetness” for the BFPA.
Phillips was speaking at the close of a service at St David’s Anglican Church to mark the association’s 63rd anniversary. (LK)
