ICFP subcommittee and community dedicated to improving access to family planning products, services, and information through the power of advocacy, communications, and media

Community FAQ

What do you do?

The ICFP is demonstrating through action the idea originally set forth in the conceptualization of the conference – to become a platform driven by the community.

As ICFP (and the world) moves towards the production of more virtual and hybrid events, we have taken this opportunity to think creatively about ways to engage and bridge our non-traditional audiences, media, and press.

Who is involved?

ICFP is fortunate enough to have the support and expertise of a wide range of leaders, advocates, young people, and artists to keep family planning at the center of the conversation on health and rights.

This year, ICFP refined its approach to engaging with high-profile figures across the global FP community and the global health community as a whole. Through coordination with existing partners and a comprehensive landscape assessment of the FP field, ICFP curated a detailed list of influencers to connect with on key FP messaging.

About the ICFP Communications Subcommittee

Advocacy Communications, Digital Media, and Media Advocacy from the Global FP Community

Communications, digital media, and content creation are core pillars across the ICFP community. The ICFP 2025 communications subcommittee works with communications professionals from INGOs, bilaterals, donor agencies, research institutes, and community and youth-led organizations. Together, we are mainstreaming family planning communications for research, programs, and advocacy at every level of partnerships from locally-led programs to national ministries of health.

Join the journey towards ICFP 2025 as we accelerate access to improving family planning products, services, and information for all.

Meet the Family Planning News Network

The Family Planning News Network fills a niche void in the global health community – ongoing digital media advocacy and influencer content creation focused on family planning and gender equity issues – through the International Conference on Family Planning platform (ICFP).

As ICFP has transformed from a biannual conference to a dynamic movement, platform, and community, FPNN has emerged as its sister platform for digital media, media advocacy, youth capacity strengthening, and media fellowships in the FP community.
