Event Website

Every other year since 2009, the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) brings together the family planning community to share best practices, celebrate successes, and chart a course forward. The ICFP serves as a strategic inflection point for the family planning and reproductive health community worldwide. It provides an opportunity for political leaders, scientists, researchers, policymakers, advocates, and youth 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.
