Collins Otieno recently joined Knowledge SUCCESS as the Knowledge Management Officer for our East African region. Collins has a wealth of experience in knowledge management (KM) and a deep commitment to advancing effective and sustainable healthcare solutions.
On this World Contraception Day, September 26, the Knowledge SUCCESS East Africa team engaged members of TheCollaborative, an East Africa FP/RH Community of Practice, in a WhatsApp dialogue to understand what they had to say about the power of "Options."
At Knowledge SUCCESS, we work closely with family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) projects around the world to support their knowledge management (KM) efforts—that is, to share what works and what doesn’t work in programs, so we can learn from each other, adapt and scale up best practices, and avoid repeating past mistakes.
A brief introduction of the new endeavors underway with USAID's reproductive health project, PROPEL Adapt.
To explore what works and what doesn't work in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs, the Knowledge SUCCESS project launched Learning Circles, an activity designed to meet the need for transparent dialogue and learning between diverse FP/RH professionals.
Pour lever le rideau sur ce qui fonctionne et ce qui ne fonctionne pas dans les programmes de PF/SR, le projet Knowledge SUCCESS a lancé les Learning Circles, une activité spécialement conçue pour répondre aux besoins de dialogue transparent et d'apprentissage entre divers professionnels de la PF/SR pour l'amélioration des programmes.
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.
In July 2023, as part of the Asia region Learning Circles cohort 3, twenty-two professionals working in various capacities in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) came together to learn, share knowledge, and connect.
In March 2023, Knowledge SUCCESS (KS) embarked on a process of engaging and supporting Asia KM Champions. KS identified 2-3 champions coming from each of the USAID priority countries in Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and the Philippines) for a total of 12 KM Champions in the region looking to further strengthen knowledge sharing within and across countries in Asia and to contextualize responses to each countries’ knowledge management needs.
