We envision a world where people have optimal reproductive health and rights. The Society of Family Planning advances sexual and reproductive health through research, education, advocacy and professional development. The SFP Research Fund supports research on contraception and abortion that exerts a sustained, powerful influence on clinical practice, public policy, health services, programs and culture.


Emerging Scholars’ awards: We are delighted to announce the 24 recipients of our first-ever Emerging Scholars’ awards. Recipients of these awards (see map and photos) receive support to become SFP members, conduct independent research, publish open-access journal articles, and attend the North American Forum on Family Planning; some recipients have also been matched with a mentor in the field. Please join us in welcoming these scholars to our community and supporting their exciting research efforts.
