The Conference organizers invite abstracts on original, inspirational and/or high-impact advocacy or campaign initiatives for female condoms at local, national or global level. The initiative either addresses female condoms specifically or as part of a broader SRHR, FP or HIV/AIDS initiative. Of particular interest are abstracts on the combination of advocacy and campaigning and those addressing female condom for MSM or young people.

All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by an international reviewing committee. The Programme Committee makes the final selection of abstracts to be included in the conference programme. Abstracts can be selected for oral presentation in oral abstract sessions or to be presented as a poster.
