In 2022, Knowledge SUCCESS collaborated with 128 Collective (formerly Preston-Werner Ventures) to conduct a rapid stock-taking exercise to document the impact of HoPE-LVB, an integrated Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) project in Kenya and Uganda.

The International Conference on Family Planning (ICFP) is the world’s largest convening of family planning and SRHR experts—and an amazing resource for knowledge exchange.
Earlier this year, Communities, Alliances & Networks (CAAN) and The World Health Organization’s (WHO) IBP Network partnered on a series of seven webinars on advancing the SRHR of Indigenous women living with HIV. Each webinar featured rich discussions, highlighting national plans and the status of Indigenous women living with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections in each country.
In March of 2020 many professionals increasingly turned to virtual solutions to meet with colleagues, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As this was a new shift for most of us, the WHO/IBP Network published Going Virtual: Tips for Hosting an Effective Virtual Meeting. While the COVID-19 pandemic showed us the power and importance of virtual meetings to continue our essential work, it also reminded us how important face-to-face interactions are for networking and relationship building. Now that virtual meetings have become a routine part of our work, many have shifted their focus to hosting hybrid meetings, where some people are participating in-person and some join remotely. In this post, we explore the benefits and challenges of hosting a hybrid meeting as well as our tips for hosting an effective hybrid meeting.
