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.

Season Two: Implementation Experiences 

Brought to you by IBP Network and Knowledge SUCCESS 

In the 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.

New episodes published every week! Episodes are also available on Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts.

Episode Two: Integrating family planning with other health areas and settings

In this episode, we will focus on integrating family planning services with other health areas and settings. Featuring guests from Tanzania, Nigeria, and Bangladesh, we will examine specific actions that programs can take to involve communities and meet family planning needs. From HIV to maternal health to refugee camps, this episode will examine what elements of these integrated programs can be replicated in other settings to improve access to family planning.

Each episode offers new insights into best practices, lessons learned, and the continued challenges of working to reduce the barriers that restrict access to family planning.

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.
