Conference organizers announced today that the fourth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) will be rescheduled for 25-28 January, 2016, in Nusa Dua, Indonesia. Previously, conference organizers had postponed the November 2015 conference dates due to a volcanic eruption on the nearby island of Lombok.

“Postponing the November conference activities was an extremely difficult decision, but we believe it was the right thing to do to protect the health and safety of our valued delegates and to maximize the value of the ICFP for the family planning community,” said Jose “Oying” Rimon II, Director of the Gates Institute and Chair of the ICFP International Steering Committee.

“We would like to thank all of our partners for their support over the last week, and in particular we would like to thank the Government of Indonesia for their guidance and hospitality,” Rimon continued. “We are pleased to confirm that the fourth ICFP will be held in Nusa Dua in late January 2016, and we are excited to reconvene the family planning community so soon.”
