Not Without FP Forum FAQs
What is the Not Without FP Forum?
In light of the postponement of ICFP 2021, organizers still wanted to provide a space for the ICFP community to come together during the original dates of the conference. Our first-ever ICFP virtual convening in February will feature special programmatic sessions, engaging digital programming on ICFPLive!, a Virtual Exhibit Hall, and several special plenary sessions focused on COVID-19’s impact on the family planning and reproductive health community.
Is the Not Without FP forum the same thing as ICFP 2021? If not, what is the difference?
While both the Not Without FP forum and ICFP 2021 are centered around the theme of Universal Health Coverage, the forum will focus specifically on the essential role of family planning in successful UHC schemes and the impact of COVID-19 on the sexual and reproductive health community. The forum will act as a springboard for the in-person ICFP and build excitement for all the opportunities for information sharing, networking and celebration to come in Thailand.
Does registering for the virtual forum also mean I’m registered for ICFP 2021?
No, registration for ICFP 2021 is separate from registration for the Not Without FP forum.
How much does it cost to attend the virtual forum?
There is no cost to attend the virtual event.
Is registration for the virtual forum required?
Registration is highly recommended to receive key updates, session reminders, and links to every session archive.
Do I need to have a Zoom account to participate?
While you aren’t required to have a Zoom account to participate in the virtual forum, we highly recommend that you set up an account if possible. A basic Zoom account is free and does not require any form of payment. You can find more information on setting up a free Zoom account here: https://zoom.us/signup
I am not able to self select the breakout room I would like to join.
If you are unable to view or access the self selection feature for breakout rooms, please check the version of your Zoom account. Make sure your Zoom account is updated to 5.3.0 or later to utilize this functionality.
Can I attend more than one session at once?
Unfortunately Zoom does not allow a user to join more than one session at a time.
Will the sessions be recorded and available after the virtual event?
When I tried to join a session, I received a notification that the meeting is full. Can I still participate in the session?
All of the sessions will be livestreamed and can be viewed on their respective session page. The Zoom interactive features and simultaneous French interpretation will not be available through the livestreams.
If I selected a specific session when I registered, but would actually like to attend a different session, am I able to?
Yes! Both the live Zoom session link and the livestream link will be posted on the session pages for easy access. Please note the live Zoom sessions are capped at a limit, so be sure to enter the session on time to reserve your spot. Otherwise, the session will still be available for viewing through the livestream link.
What languages will be offered?
English and simultaneous French interpretation will be available to participants who join the session through Zoom.
