International Conference on Family Planning 2016

Date(s):
January 25, 2016 to January 28, 2016
Location:
Nusa Dua
Theme:
Global Commitments, Local Actions
Hosts:
The Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the National Population and Family Planning Board Indonesia

IntraHealth staff will join thousands of family planning experts and activists from around the world at the 2016 International Conference on Family Planning in Nusa Dua, Indonesia. Full program here.

Women who have access to contraceptives and the health workers who provide them tend to be healthier, get more education, and have a better shot at earning wages. And so do their children. Already, family planning has changed the world for us all. Over the next 15 years, as countries work toward the new global Sustainable Development Goals and build up their health workforces, we could make even faster progress. 

That's why IntraHealth will join the global health community January 25–28. We hope to see you there.
