Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back & to kick off the giving season. You can give the gift of safe, secure #reproductivehealth to women and girls around the world, and whatever amount you give, it will be doubled.

#SRHR

Sexual and gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of women and girls.
Yet #SGBV remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
📣 Speaking out
brings us a step closer towards justice & healing.

We’re inspired! Over the last four days, we asked delegates at #ICFP2018 to share their commitments to #familyplanning. We heard from youth advocates, leaders, activists, scientists, researchers, and more!

EngenderHealth Previews its Participation in the Fifth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) in Kigali, Rwanda

November 07, 2018 (Washington, DC; Kigali, Rwanda) EngenderHealth—a global women’s health and sexual and reproductive rights organization—will join thousands of family planning advocates, community leaders, policymakers, researchers, scientists, and youth from around the world who are attending the fifth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) on 12-15 November 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda. EngenderHealth will use the opportunity to showcase its commitment to access, excellence, and impact in family planning.

This year’s theme for ICFP is “Investing for a Lifetime of Returns,” which highlights the extensive “social and economic benefits of family planning investments—for individuals, families, and countries.” EngenderHealth supports this theme through a commitment to expanding access to contraception, to improving quality and achieving excellence in reproductive health programming, and to delivering measurable impact. At ICFP, EngenderHealth will celebrate its 75th anniversary and renew its commitment to gender-transformative programming and to empowering women and girls everywhere to live their lives to their full potentials.

EngenderHealth has been selected to deliver 9 oral presentations and 25 poster presentations at the conference, reflecting the organization’s role as a technical leader in the field. Additionally, building upon EngenderHealth’s recognized leadership in male engagement in reproductive health and family planning, President and CEO, Traci L. Baird, MPH, will moderate a session on boys and men as partners. EngenderHealth is also leveraging ICFP as the opportunity to launch REDI: A Client-Centered Counseling Framework, an updated, comprehensive approach and training curriculum to strengthening counseling for contraception.

Baird noted, “ICFP comes at a perfect time for EngenderHealth to reconnect with colleagues and partners and to establish new relationships. Our commitment to FP is unwavering and we are eager to share lessons from our programs and learn from participants from around the world.”

Attendees in Kigali are invited to join EngenderHealth’s scheduled events or visit their booth—#33. Those who are unable to participate in Kigali, are invited to visit EngenderHealth’s ICFP microsite, where all conference posters and presentations are posted and the new REDI framework materials are available. For additional details on EngenderHealth’s participation at ICFP, including a schedule of events, please visit www.engenderhealth.org/icfp2018.
