International Conference on Family Planning

November 12-15, 2018

Every other year since 2009, the International Conference on Family Planning has brought together the family planning community to share best practices, celebrate successes, and chart a course forward.

The 2018 International Conference on Family Planning took place in Kigali, Rwanda, from November 12-15. The conference was co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Rwanda. The theme of the conference was “Investing for a Lifetime of Returns" and was held at the state-of-the-art Kigali Convention Center.

SHOPS Plus shared new insights in private sector health through several oral and poster presentations, and at booth #45 during the four-day conference.
