Gates Institute Director’s Message, August 2022

Aug 31, 2022 | Directors Message, ICFP, News

The Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health is working diligently with our esteemed 2022 International Conference on Family Planning co-hosts Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health, the Royal Thai College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and the Population and Community Development Association to ensure an informative, inspirational, and impactful conference is delivered to all attending the 2022 ICFP.

Outside of the safety of all of our delegates, our top priority is to ensure that everyone across our community, no matter from where they will be traveling, has the opportunity to attend the conference without having to overcome unsurmountable travel-related barriers.

Learn more about the #ICFP2022 visa process – including what we are doing to help those experiencing issues with their visas – and contact the ICFP Secretariat with any questions or concerns.

We look forward to welcoming you to Thailand for the sixth ICFP 14-17 November 2022 in Pattaya City, Thailand as we work together to make family planning for all a reality.
