Every other year since 2009, the International Conference on Family Planning has brought together the family planning community to share best practices, celebrate successes, and chart a course forward.

The International Conference on Family Planning 2022 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.

Authors may submit each abstract in up to two tracks. Abstracts on cross-cutting topics, such as advocacy, should be submitted to the most relevant track(s). For questions about submitting an abstract, please contact abstracts@theicfp.org.
