International Conference on Family Planning

25-28 JANUARY 2016 | NUSA DUA, INDONESIA

UPDATE: Conference organizers have announced that the fourth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) will be rescheduled for 25-28 January, 2016, in Nusa Dua, Indonesia. Previously, conference organizers had postponed the November 2015 conference dates due to a volcanic eruption on the nearby island of Lombok. The 2015 ICFP will be co-hosted by the National Population and Family Planning Board of Indonesia (BkkbN) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. This year’s conference is expected to draw the largest number of attendants yet, and the ICFP will help shape and influence the role and contributions of family planning in attaining the new Sustainable Development Goals. The ICFP is more than a conference; it is a movement and a platform for strategic inflection points in the family planning agenda.
