ICFP’s First-ever #NotWithoutFP Forum Event Report Now Available

Aug 4, 2021

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 Forum showcased how innovation and collaboration can accelerate progress towards universal access to reproductive health and family planning services that save lives, improve economies, empower women and girls, and figuratively and literally transform our world.

As we know, it takes a village to accomplish something great. This Forum was made possible in a spectacular way through multiple villages in the reproductive health community and the village of the global health sector that came together over two days to build, amplify, and solidify the ICFP as an international movement, platform, and community. Not only did the Forum run effortlessly, it also set a precedent for global accessibility among future virtual events in the larger SRHR community and beyond.

A big kudos to our communications experts, our Forum hostess Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng and other 120 Under 40 winners for organizing sessions throughout the two days. Finally, thank you to our Co-hosts, Core Organizing Group, sponsors, and partners without whom the ICFP would not be possible.

The disruptive events of the pandemic, while painful, can be important opportunities to transform the way we think and do our work. It will take a massive mindset change and more global collaboration to ensure family planning is an essential service that’s accessible to all. We invite you to review the report and share your own thoughts.
