The International Conference on Family Planning, held every other year, brings together family planning experts to assess the state of family planning around the world and share best practices. This year’s conference, held in Nusa Dua, Indonesia, is expected to draw the largest number of attendants, and will help chart the future of family planning programmes for the years to come.

UNFPA, which works at every level to support access to safe, voluntary family planning, is a key partner in convening this event.

Access to voluntary family planning is a human right. Family planning is central to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and it is a key factor in reducing poverty. It also saves lives. Learn more about how UNFPA supports family planning.
