The Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) Bulgaria program, by design, includes a complex variety of partners, including the licensee (TSA), National Unit (HESED), and local implementation teams (Sheynovo hospital), as well as a National and Local Advisory Board.

TSA awarded a grant to the Second Municipal Hospital For Obstetrics And Gynecology PLS in order to establish and operate the site delivery team for Sofia.  The site delivery team includes 5 home visitors (midwives and nurses), 1 supervisor nurse, 2 health mediators, 1 accountant, 1 project coordinator.  The team members will be situated in the newly renovated and furnished  office located in the hospital. The nurses will provide home visits according to the program requirements and guidelines in the Fakulteta neighborhood, with the help of the health mediators who will promote the program and will help to identify pregnant mothers.  In addition to home visiting services, this project also includes a component that will help mothers and newborn babies by providing access to vitamins and medications prescribed by their GP.
