The East Africa region faces many health risks that transcend borders. The health and development context within the region emphasizes strengthening cross-border health systems and tapping into a strong network of regional intergovernmental organizations (RIGOs), who play a convening role in previous and ongoing health investments. Gender inequity in the region continues to shape power and decision-making in the region and as such gender equality work is of high priority. Additionally, youth – and increasing their representation in decision-making roles – is of utmost importance. Family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) goals need to be met within the framework of these priorities, and knowledge management (KM) has a big role to play in this work. The goal for Knowledge SUCCESS in East Africa is to improve access to and quality of FP/RH programs by strengthening KM capacities for audiences ranging from practitioners and health care organizations to policymakers.
