Announcing ICFP’s “Not Without FP Forum,” A Virtual Dialogue for the FP Community

Sep 29, 2020

This special virtual convening will feature engaging digital programming on ICFPLive!, a virtual Exhibit Hall, dedicated community engagement spaces, and three special plenary sessions. This community forum is partner-driven and will include a mix of plenary sessions, community dialogues, and engagement opportunities. And best of all, it is free of charge to the ICFP community! (Registration will open November 16, 2020.)

The coming year is pivotal for the family planning community as we reflect on the progress made and challenges faced in reaching the ambitious FP2020 goal of enabling an additional 120 million women and girls to access high-quality, voluntary contraceptive commodities and services. The Not Without FP Forum and 2021 ICFP will showcase how innovation and collaboration will accelerate progress towards universal access to reproductive health and family planning— services save lives, improve economies, empower women and girls, and figuratively and literally transform our world.

ICFP’s Not Without FP Forum will be accessible at no cost to the entire family planning and reproductive health community, as well as other development sectors and the larger human rights and humanitarian communities worldwide. The forum will bring us together to share scientific research, best practices, and learnings—specifically regarding UHC and the impact of COVID-19 on the family planning and reproductive health community—and build excitement for the many incredible opportunities for information sharing, networking, and celebration at the in-person ICFP in Thailand in November 2021.

The 2021 ICFP theme, “Family Planning & Universal Health Coverage: Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate.” underscores our belief that universal health coverage will not be successful without integrated and comprehensive family planning programs.

Please save the date and join us for this global digital convening of the family planning, reproductive health, and global development communities worldwide.

Registration information, details about sessions, and ways to engage will be available on November 16, 2020 at ICFP2021.org.
