Call for applications for fully funded International Conference on Family Planning in Africa 2018. Young people’s beliefs and decisions about family planning are critical to their sexual and reproductive health and rights. Too often, young people face obstacles that limit their access to modern contraceptive methods of their choice. Structural, financial, political and educational barriers are but a few of the factors involved in preventing youth from exercising their right to family planning.

The organizers of the 2018 ICFP are seeking youth leaders aged 18 to 25 years old to be keynote speakers, media makers and moderators for sessions at the conference. Young people who are selected will have conference registration and travel costs covered, and will play an essential role in providing a youth perspective and voice to the program.
