Marie Stopes International will be taking part in the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) in Indonesia, 9-12 November 2015.
The conference, which is co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute, is designed to bring the family planning community together, to share best practice and celebrate successes. A key outcome for the conference will be to discuss the role of family planning in attaining the new Sustainable Development Goals, and begin charting a course to achieve them.
Marie Stopes teams from around the globe will be speaking on key issues at a number of conference sessions and events - you can view our flyer for all the information on where we'll be, but highlights include:
- Building the case for investment in contraception. A conversation with Andrew Jack of the Financial Times
Andrew Jack will discuss how to build the case for investment in contraception, and translate that case to new, interested audiences in the financial and economic sectors. You can read more about the challenge in our recently published report, Time to Invest.
- Leave no one behind: universal health care and family planning
Our CEO, Simon Cooke, will hold a joint reception with Population Services International, discussing whether universal health care reforms will reduce unmet need and ensure equitable access to family planning services.
- Clinical outreach tent
Instead of the usual conference booth we will erect one of our mobile outreach tents, used in our rural service delivery programmes. Attendees will be invited to experience how we deliver contraception to some of the world’s most under-served communities.
