A Note from ICFP's Secretariat

After two conference postponements, and almost two years living through a pandemic, we are excited to report the ICFP Secretariat is moving forward planning and programming the sixth International Conference on Family Planning being held in Pattaya City, Thailand 14-17 November 2022.

We look forward sharing with our community the essential work the 2022 ICFP, its partners, and members of the community are doing to promote voices, initiatives, and perspectives of the FP community.

And we look forward to welcoming you to Thailand next November!
