The Inside the FP Story podcast explores the details of family planning programming. Season 2 is brought to you by Knowledge SUCCESS and the World Health Organization (WHO)/IBP Network. It will explore implementation experiences from 15 countries and programs around the world. Over six episodes, you will hear from the authors of a series of implementation stories as they offer practical examples and specific guidance for others on implementing high-impact practices in family planning and using the latest tools and guidance from WHO.
Inside the FP Story is a podcast with and for the family planning workforce. Each season, we publish honest and open conversations with family planning program experts around the world as they share what has worked in their settings—and what to avoid.
In early 2020, the WHO/IBP Network and Knowledge SUCCESS launched an effort to support organizations to share their experiences using high-impact practices and WHO guidelines and tools in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programming. From a pool of over 100 submissions, 15 organizations were selected to share their implementation experiences.
Building off the interest of these implementation experiences, Knowledge SUCCESS and the WHO/IBP Network partnered for season 2 of Inside the FP Story. You’ll hear directly from the 15 organizations as they dive into the details of their implementation experiences and chart a roadmap of lessons and recommendations that others can apply in their programs.
This season features a “craft academy” in Benin that teaches girls about contraception as they create beaded jewelry, a mobile service delivery program serving women in rural Guatemala, a program working to remove taxes on contraceptives in Madagascar, and much more. Guests from 15 countries around the world discuss not only what they did but how they did it. Season 2 of Inside the FP Story features implementation experiences mobilizing and reaching communities, engaging adolescents and providing adolescent-friendly services, and shaping supportive systems for FP/RH programs.
Tune in for new episodes every Wednesday, from January 12 through February 16, to explore the amazing and diverse world of FP/RH programs.
Inside the FP Story, Season 2, is available on Knowledge SUCCESS’ website, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or Stitcher. You can also find Spanish and French transcripts of each episode at KnowledgeSUCCESS.org.
