Inside the FP Story

Inside the FP Story

A podcast exploring the details of family planning programming. 

We made tremendous progress in the last decade to advance cutting-edge family planning frameworks, implement diverse programs, and expand the conversation on family planning funding within the health care system to meet the needs of women and girls, couples, and families. But much work still needs to be done. Learning practical ways to improve family planning programs often happens in casual conversations with peers and colleagues.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and listen in on honest conversations with family planning program experts around the world as they share what has worked in their settings — and what to avoid — in our podcast series, Inside the FP Story.

There are many interesting stories and perspectives to hear in the family planning and reproductive health field. Every season, we’ll dive into pressing questions and explore innovative approaches and solutions, focused along a different theme.

Currently featuring Season 3: Gender Integration in Family Planning

Episode 3: Male Engagement in Family Planning

In this episode, we will discuss engaging men and boys in family planning and reproductive health programs. We will talk to guests from diverse settings about: what this means; strategies for putting this into practice; and recommendations for how we can work with men to support women’s reproductive autonomy.

Episode 1: Introduction to Gender Integration in Family Planning

The first episode of Season 3 is divided into two parts. The first part will provide background and basics on gender integration in the context of family planning. We will define some key terms and explain what is meant when we say a family planning program is “gender transformative.” Then, our guests will begin unpacking the topic of reproductive empowerment, including how to measure it. The second part of the episode, “Voice, Choice, and Action” will dive deeper into reproductive empowerment.

Season Two: Implementation Experiences

In this six-episode second season of Inside the FP Story, we collaborated with the World Health Organization (WHO) / IBP Network to explore issues around implementing family planning programs. Featuring six episodes, this season connects you with the authors of a series of implementation stories—published by the IBP Network and Knowledge SUCCESS. These stories 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.

Why did we create this podcast?

In mid-2020, Knowledge SUCCESS hosted regional co-creation workshops for FP/RH professionals in Asia, Africa, and the US. Participants voiced a desire for new ways to learn and share practical lessons and experiences that they could access anywhere. A highly portable and short format, podcasts bridge the gap between traditional learning and the current pace of knowledge exchange.
