Despite the success of the Ouagadougou Partnership, the francophone Africa family planning and reproductive health ecosystem faces challenges. Knowledge SUCCESS aims to help address the identified regional knowledge management challenges.
The East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda seem to have one common challenge in the implementation of family planning and reproductive health programs—knowledge management. The countries are rich in family planning and reproductive health knowledge, but such information is fragmented and not shared. To tackle the identified challenges, Knowledge SUCCESS mobilized family planning and reproductive health stakeholders in the region to address the knowledge management jigsaw puzzle.
Over the last several years, Knowledge SUCCESS’s resources have gained traction in the Asia-Pacific region. These USAID family planning priority countries have shown progress and commitment to improving family planning services. However, persistent challenges remain.
The Philippines has been a pioneer of programming using the multisectoral Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) approach to improve conservation efforts, family planning, and overall health. A new publication highlights insights and themes from two decades of PHE programming, sharing lessons for others involved in multisectoral approaches.
