120 Under 40 is at the International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP), taking place November 12-15, 2018, in Kigali, Rwanda! The ICFP is the world’s largest academic conference dedicated to family planning, and this year expects its highest-ever numbers of youth participation. 120 Under 40 has been very active in the conference planning and will have a large presence at the conference. A number of winners will be delivering oral and poster presentations in addition to planning and executing various conference activities.
Besides the conference sessions, here’s where you can find 120 Under 40 winners during the ICFP:
- At the Youth Pre-conference, taking place November 10-12: 120 Under 40 winners will attend the Youth Pre-conference, and organized a plenary as well as the mentorship activities that will pair up experienced mentors with up-and-coming young leaders in the field. The 120 Under 40 winners not only organized this activity, but have committed to serve as mentors as well! Click here to learn more about the mentorship activities.
