International Conference on Family Planning
A movement. A platform. A community.
The International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) serves as a strategic inflection point for the family planning and reproductive health community worldwide.
It provides an opportunity to disseminate knowledge, celebrate successes, and identify next steps toward reaching the goal of enabling an additional 120 million women to access voluntary, quality contraception by 2020 – and beyond.
The bi-annual conference remains the largest international scientific and community gathering on reproductive health and family planning and the sixth ICFP will be held in Pattaya City, Thailand November 14-17, 2022.
Our first-ever ICFP virtual convening in February 2022 featured special programmatic sessions, engaging digital programming on ICFPLive!, a Virtual Exhibit Hall, and several special plenary sessions focused on COVID-19’s impact on the family planning and reproductive health community.
The International Conference on Family Planning has convened the global development community around a shared vision of universal access to family planning. Since 2009, the ICFP platform has evolved into something much more than a conference.
It’s also a platform, a community, and a movement.
A movement towards universal access to family planning services and contraception. For nearly 12 years, the ICFP community has worked together to move family planning and reproductive health priorities to the center of development.
A global platform from which countries, local governments, organizations, and individuals can make public commitments to family planning and can be recognized for their achievements. Dozens of side events are organized around the conference by the hundreds of attending institutions and organizations from around the world.
A community of advocates, political leaders, scientists, researchers, policymakers, practitioners, faith leaders, and youth leaders exchanging ideas and working together to innovate and progress family planning programming, advocacy, and research.
