ICFP Youth Trailblazer Award to Open 1 November

2018 Winners of EXCELL Award celebrating on-stage

The organizers of the 2022 International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) are proud to support the fourth ICFP Youth Trailblazer Award, formerly known as the Youth Travel Award or Youth Leader Video Contest. The ICFP Youth Trailblazer Award aims to amplify and highlight the voices of young leaders in the family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SHRH) field through active planning and participation in the 2022 ICFP. 

Young leader applicants, between the 18-35, are invited to submit a maximum 5-minute video corresponding to the 2022 conference theme, “Family Planning & Universal Health Coverage: Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate”.

Young leaders who are awarded the 2022 ICFP Youth Trailblazer Award will be funded to attend the 2022 ICFP in Pattaya, Thailand in November 2022. Awardees will also actively participate in planning activities for ICFP, have speaking roles at ICFP, and engage in other conference opportunities that raise the voices, perceptive, and experiences of youth in the family planning community.
