ICFP: Beyond a Conference, A Global Movement for Accessible Family Planning
The International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) has become much more than a conference—it has grown into a platform for researchers, advocates, governments, and communities; a movement towards achieving access to family planning for all; and a growing community guided by the spirit of partnership, inclusivity, innovation and scientific rigor.
Since the first ICFP in Kampala, Uganda in 2009, ICFP has served as a strategic inflection point for the global reproductive health and family planning community, providing a global stage for countries, organizations, and individuals to make significant commitments and celebrate achievements as the world’s largest scientific conference on family planning and reproductive health.
