2022 International Conference on Family Planning

Monday, November 14, 2022 – Thursday, November 17, 2022
Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall (PEACH), Chonburi Thailand

Abt Global is a proud sponsor of the 2022 International Conference on Family Planning. The three-day hybrid event features researchers, advocates, governments, and communities focusing on a movement toward achieving access to family planning (FP) for all.

The 2022 conference theme underscores the key role family planning plays in achieving universal health coverage and an opportunity to highlight our work strengthening systems, services, and coordination between the private sector, governments, and civil society to advance innovative and affordable contraceptive products and services.

We work across the globe to help prevent unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, and maternal deaths by increasing demand for and access to affordable, quality FP services. Abt leads a wide range of FP projects—from SHOPS Plus which through a public/private engagement approach has delivered couples over 2.5 million couple-years protection—to the DRC, where support to the public sector has resulted in 1.2 million new FP users in a year and a half.

Join ICFP Live or in person to learn about our expertise in family planning and maternal and child health.
