ICFP 2022 Highlights: Our Favorite Presentations, Learnings, and Moments of Fun!

Held in Pattaya City, Thailand on November 14-17, the 2022 International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) boasted a comprehensive program consisting of 1,500 scientific presentations, 11 pre-conference events, and four site visits jam-packed into a short four-and-a-half day whirlwind. Sessions covered a full range of topics from Contraceptive Technology to Male Engagement to Climate Change, and much more.

With so many concurrent sessions and events and so little time, it was understandably impossible for ICFP conference delegates – whether attending in person or virtually – to fully take in all of the knowledge and resources shared throughout the week. To help reduce feelings of information overload, we asked our Knowledge SUCCESS staff in attendance at ICFP (Irene Alenga, Joy Hayley Munthali, Catherine Packer, Gayo Pasion, Ruwaida Salem, Anne Ballard Sara, Aissatou Thioye, and Sophie Weiner) to share their favorite presentations, key learnings, and fun moments from this year’s conference.
