The 6th international conference on family planning kicked off right here in Pattaya, on November 14th, 2022.
ICFP2022 is scheduled to take place for four conference days from November 14-17, 2022, and will bring together more than 3,500 global policymakers, researchers, activists, and advocates from over 125 countries to Pattaya.
The conference’s co-hosts are Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health; the Royal Thai College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RTCOG); Population and Community Development Association (PDA); and the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population & Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (USA).
ICFP2022’s theme this year, “Family Planning & Universal Health Coverage: Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate,” examines the important ways that family planning supports and intersects with universal health coverage. The conference comes at a critical crossroads in global public health and will provide a platform for leaders to define their FP2030 milestones and commitments against the backdrop of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
