2011 International Conference on Family Planning: Research & Best Practices

Globally, almost 900 million women and their partners currently practice family planning. Still, family planning remains out of reach for many couples – 215 million couples in the developing world are unable to plan their childbearing when they want. In some countries, the level of unmet need for family planning exceeds that of met need. Family planning enables couples to make reproductive choices and is one of the most cost-effective means for improving the health and wealth of families, communities and nations.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Government of Senegal’s Ministry of Health and Prevention, along with international and national partners, will co-host the 2011 International Conference on Family Planning: Research and Best Practices November 29-December 2, 2011 in Dakar, Senegal.
