On August 16, 2023, Knowledge SUCCESS hosted a webinar titled ‘Strategies to Engage the Private Sector in FP/RH: Insights, Experiences, and Lessons Learned from Asia’. The webinar explored strategies to engage the private sector, as well as successes and lessons learned from implementation experiences from RTI International in the Philippines and MOMENTUM Nepal/FHI 360 in Nepal.
Since 2019, Knowledge SUCCESS has been building momentum in improving access to and quality of family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) programs by strengthening knowledge management (KM) capacities among relevant stakeholders in East Africa.
Blue Ventures started integrating health interventions, addressing a huge unmet need for family planning. We came to understand that we were addressing a health need which is part of a broader ecosystem consisting of conservation, health, livelihood, and other challenges.
High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIPs) are a set of evidence-based family planning practices vetted by experts against specific criteria and documented in an easy-to-use format. The Evaluation of High Impact Practices in Family Planning Products sought to understand whether and how HIP products were being used among health professionals at the country and global levels. Using key informant interviews (KIIs), a small study team found that various HIP products are used by family planning experts and professionals to inform policy, strategy, and practice.
Knowledge SUCCESS is pleased to announce the second edition in a series that documents what works in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH). The series uses innovative design to present, in-depth, essential elements of impactful programs.
We all know that sharing information across projects and organizations is good for FP/RH programs. Despite our best intentions, however, information sharing doesn’t always happen. We might lack time to share or we aren’t sure if the information shared will be useful. Sharing information about programmatic failures has even more barriers because of the associated stigma. So what can we do to motivate the FP/RH workforce to share more information about what works and what doesn’t work in FP/RH?
D'octobre à décembre 2021, des professionnels de la planification familiale et de la santé reproductive (PF/SR) basés en Afrique subsaharienne francophone et dans les Caraïbes se sont réunis virtuellement pour la deuxième cohorte de Learning Circles de Knowledge SUCCESS. Le thème principal était la mobilisation significative des jeunes dans les programmes de PF/SR.
WHO/IBP Network and Knowledge SUCCESS recently published a series of 15 stories about organizations implementing High Impact Practices (HIPs) and WHO Guidelines and Tools in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programming. This quick read shares considerations, tips, and tools that we learned while creating the series. Documenting implementation stories—to share country experiences, lessons learned, and recommendations—strengthens our collective knowledge about implementing evidence-based interventions.
Today, Knowledge SUCCESS is pleased to announce the first in a series that documents “What Works in Family Planning and Reproductive Health.” The new series will present, in depth, essential elements of impactful programs The series uses innovative design to address some of the barriers that traditionally discourage people from creating or using documents that share this level of detail.
