In November 2022, members of the ThinkWell team participated in the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP).
This is the world’s largest gathering of family planning (FP) and reproductive health professionals. Over the years, ICFP has “grown into a platform for researchers, advocates, governments, and communities; a movement towards achieving access to family planning for all; and a growing community guided by the spirit of partnership, inclusivity, innovation, and scientific rigor.
“As the larger family planning community looks ‘beyond 2020’ to realign [global] goals and reposition for the future of family planning, ICFP 2022 will be a strategic benchmark as the community prepares to recommit to a goal of universal access by 2030.”
ThinkWell at ICFP
Members of the ThinkWell team from an array of projects led several oral presentations, as well as satellite and poster sessions.
Dr. Marie-Jeanne Offosse gave two oral presentations as part of a larger panel session. One presentation covered the costs and demands for family planning in Burkina Faso; the other offered health care provider perspectives on free family planning services. From ThinkWell Philippines, Geminn Apostol led a session on how to expand family planning access through public-private health care provider networks in the Philippines.
Other members of the ThinkWell team presented at ICFP include Sarah Straubinger who gave an oral presentation titled “Understanding family planning counseling for Burkinabé women: Study results to confirm the quality-of-care measures for routine service monitoring,” the result of a 27-country global desk review.
Edward Sutanto of ThinkWell also presented findings from a study on “experience, perception, and preference among Indonesian contraceptive users.” A ThinkWell learning partner, Dr. Pip, of University of Philippines Visayas, led oral presentations and poster sessions on our family planning work in Indonesia and the Philippines.
