In June 2021, Knowledge SUCCESS launched FP insight, the first resource discovery and curation tool built by and for the family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) workforce. The platform addresses common knowledge management concerns expressed by those working in FP/RH. It allows users to curate collections of resources on FP/RH topics so they can easily return to those resources when they need them. Professionals can follow colleagues in their field and get inspiration from their collections and stay on top of trending topics in FP/RH. With over 750 members from Africa, Asia, and the United States sharing cross-cutting FP/RH knowledge, FP insight had an impactful first year! Exciting new features are on the horizon as FP insight rapidly evolves to best meet the diverse knowledge needs of the FP/RH community.
Season 3 of the Inside the FP Story podcast explores how to approach gender integration in family planning programs. It covers the topics of reproductive empowerment, gender-based violence prevention and response, and male engagement. Here, we summarize key insights shared by the season’s guests.
The next few episodes of the Inside the FP Story podcast will feature questions from listeners. We want to hear from you!
On Earth Day 2021, Knowledge SUCCESS launched People-Planet Connection, an online platform focused on population, health, environment, and development (PHE/PED) approaches. As I reflect on the growth of this platform at the one-year mark (as we approach the annual celebration of Earth Day), I’m happy to report the addition of blog posts and time-bound dialogues to share and exchange information in a more timely and friendly format. As is the case with the new and the young, we have growth yet to come—to bring greater awareness of the value of this platform to the PHE/PED community and beyond.
The Inside the FP Story podcast explores the details of family planning programming. Season 2 is brought to you by Knowledge SUCCESS and the World Health Organization (WHO)/IBP Network. It will explore implementation experiences from 15 countries and programs around the world. Over six episodes, you will hear from the authors of a series of implementation stories as they 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.
Knowledge Management Champions play an important role in change management for family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs. Also known as KM Champions, Knowledge Activists, or Knowledge Coordinators, they are not knowledge managers but part-time volunteer knowledge change agents—facilitating knowledge acquisitions from knowledge innovators and enabling the sharing and effective utilization of such knowledge.
In spite of all the interest in individual know-how and learning, capturing and sharing tacit program knowledge remains a significant challenge and requires social interaction. This is exactly what Knowledge SUCCESS set out to change with the introduction of the Learning Circles regional cohort series. Informal, cross-organizational knowledge and information sharing that aligns with regional context are in demand. FP/RH professionals call for new ways to access and use evidence and best practices to optimize FP/RH programs.
