In February 2021, the sixth edition of the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) will take place in Thailand! The ICFP serves as a strategic inflection point for the family planning and reproductive health community worldwide. It provides an opportunity to disseminate knowledge, celebrate successes, and identify next steps toward reaching the goal of enabling an additional 120 million women to access voluntary, quality contraception by 2020 – and beyond.
This year’s theme, “Family Planning & Universal Health Coverage: Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate.” underscores our belief that family planning should be a core component of universal health coverage. Not only is access to family planning and reproductive health services a pillar of good personal health, it is also a critical component of a country’s economic health.
As the larger family planning community looks “beyond 2020” to realign our goals and reposition for the future of family planning, Thailand’s family planning and reproductive health programs represent what is possible when government, public health groups, and civil society organizations work in tandem on health, rights, and poverty issues.
The International Conference on Family Planning 2021 invites abstracts on cutting-edge research, program, and advocacy results directed at enabling individuals throughout the world, especially in low-income areas, to achieve their contraceptive and reproductive intentions. Abstracts using strong scientific/evaluation methods will be given priority in the review and acceptance process.
The scientific abstract and Youth Leader Video Contest submission modules will open on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 and close June 2, 2020.
Please check back on March 4 for more detailed instructions about submitting your abstract. For questions about submitting an abstract in the meantime, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
