Event description

Description

The Government of Rwanda will host the fifth International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP2018) which will take place in Kigali, from 12-15 November 2018. The ICFP as an international conference provides an opportunity for participants (political leaders, scientists, researchers, policymakers, advocates, and youth), to disseminate knowledge and celebrate successes.

In recent years, the country of Rwanda has strongly invested in the decentralization of the health system, empowering its network of Community Health Workers (CHWs) to strengthen the supply and demand side and establish secondary health posts next to faith-based health facilities that do not provide FP commodities.

Additionally, the integration of family planning with other health services and the capacity building of health care providers to provide long-acting and permanent contraceptive methods have advanced the positive trend of family planning uptake. As well, the improvement of family planning education and service provision among youth required the integration of sexual and reproductive health services in healthcare through youth corners and a strong collaboration with Youth Friendly Centers.

The site visits scheduled prior to the 2018 ICFP offer Rwanda the opportunity to share with ICFP attendees a first-hand look at these successful programs in action. Four districts were chosen to showcase family planning best practices: the City of Kigali, Rwamagana, Kayonza and Kamonyi. The family planning delivery posts featured include Rwamagana and Remera Rukoma District Health Centers; Masaka and Kicukiro Secondary Health Posts; Kimisagara, Kamonyi, and Kayonza Youth Friendly Centers and Youth Corners; and Kicukiro Vocational Training Center showcasing jobs training programs for youth which positively contribute to achieving the Demographic Dividend.

All sales are final, non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please double-check your selected site visit location and date before purchasing your ticket.
