International Conference on Family Planning

A movement. A platform. A community.

International Conference on Family Planning

International Conference on Family Planning

The International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) is the world’s largest scientific conference on family planning and reproductive health. Since the first ICFP in Kampala, Uganda in 2009, ICFP has served as a strategic inflection point for the global reproductive health community, providing a global stage for countries, organizations, and individuals to make important commitments and celebrate achievements. ICFP has demonstrated the power of community in sharing research, best practices, and advocacy wins; advancing the goals of family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights; and highlighting the importance of continued collaboration and engagement to achieve these goals.
