From Conference to Platform

How the World's Largest Scientific Community of Family Planning and SRHR Professionals Has Learned, Grown, and Evolved

As the world grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, the ICFP community demonstrated exceptional leadership by conducting groundbreaking research, devising innovative solutions, and forging partnerships to advance family planning and reproductive health and rights despite unprecedented challenges.

To foster greater collaboration and adapt to the changing landscape, the ICFP community recognized the need for a new approach. This led to the development of an evolving, multi-sectoral platform that goes beyond the traditional biennial conference model to better serve the community’s needs.

Over the past four years, ICFP has undergone a remarkable transformation. This vibrant movement is united by a shared belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality family planning services, products, and information.

It has also become an engaging, informative, and inspiring platform that brings together a diverse group of family planning advocates, researchers, political and faith leaders, and program implementers of all ages.
