Asociación Chilena de Protección de la Familia
The Asociación Chilena de Protección de la Familia (APROFA) was founded in 1962. It was the first family planning organization in the country to focus on small programmes in under-served, impoverished areas.
APROFA promotes responsible parenthood and family planning, in conjunction with the Chilean government. APROFA works with the Red Cross to provide contraceptive and diagnostic services. In the last decade the organization has put special emphasis on training, information and education activities for teachers and students at all levels to promote sexual health education.
