International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) 2013 Participant’s Briefing Note – Youth Advocates Tuesday 12th November – Friday

15th November 2013 Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

What is the International Conference on Family Planning? The ICFP is a bi-annual global conference led by the Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health in order to galvanise commitments and draw attention to the importance of access to contraceptives and family planning services globally. This is the third ICFP (the first was in 2009 in Uganda, and the second in 2011 in Senegal), and expects to receive 3,000-4,000 participants from across the world. The November 2013 conference will be co-hosted by the Gates Institute and the Federal Ministry of Health of Ethiopia with a multitude of international and national partners. Ethiopia was selected for the third International Conference because of the country’s strong commitment to family planning and the success they have had in increasing access to family planning, 100% increase in their modern contraceptive prevalence rate (from 15% in 2005 to 29% in 2011) and also the success of their cost effective health extension workers program. The ICFP is more than a conference; it is a movement and a platform for strategic inflection points in the family planning agenda. The theme for 2013 will be Full Access, Full Choice. The conference program will include an opening reception, daily plenaries, a number of interactive skill-building sessions, panel presentations, poster sessions, a policymaker forum and an exhibit area. National and international journalists will be invited to report on the event. In addition, we anticipate many satellite events such as skill-building workshops, receptions and meetings. Participants will be researchers, program managers, policymakers, and representatives from international donor organizations and foundations, including many young people and newly emerging leaders in the field of family planning and reproductive health. The official languages of the conference will be English and French. What does IPPF want to achieve at the ICFP this year? 1. To position IPPF as the world’s leading provider of SRH services, and a critical part of the global SRH architecture, and to help secure resources required to double services by 2015; 2. To increase visibility of IPPF’s role in building a strong civil society movement to ensure accountability – including FP2020 - at the national, regional and global level; 3. To galvanize civil society and like-minded partners to ensure that the post-2015 development framework highlights the centrality of SRHR to sustainable development; 4. To build strong youth response for strategic engagement and participation in the family planning agenda. 5. To provide opportunities to unite the IPPF Federation to strengthen our global reach in the area of SRHR;
