International Conference on Family Planning

Date(s):
November 14, 2022 12:00am EST to November 17, 2022 11:55pm EST

Family planning plays a key role in achieving universal health coverage. That's why this year's International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) conference is focused on family planning and universal health coverage. Partners and community members will come together to talk about the evidence, research, and lessons learned about the power family planning and how it helps achieve universal health coverage.

ICFP is 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 as the world’s largest scientific conference on family planning and reproductive health. 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. As the larger family planning community looks “beyond 2020” to realign our goals and reposition for the future of family planning, ICFP 2022 will be a strategic benchmark as the community prepares to recommit to a goal of universal access by 2030.

IntraHealth is a proud co-sponsor of the 2022 conference.
