What is ICFP?

Since its inaugural convening in Kampala, Uganda in 2009, the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) has become a pivotal catalyst in global reproductive health. This world conference is a strategic inflection point for nations, institutions, and individuals seeking to pledge commitments and celebrate successes in family planning and reproductive health.

More than a conference, ICFP has evolved into a digital platform resonating with researchers, health equity champions, governments, and communities alike. It’s a dynamic movement propelling universal family planning access, underpinned by a vibrant community fueled by collaboration, inclusivity, innovation, and scientific integrity.

ICFP stands as a testament to our shared commitment to shaping a world where every individual’s reproductive health is safeguarded, and where the principles of partnership, progress, and empowerment illuminate the path forward.
