In March 2021, Knowledge SUCCESS and Blue Ventures, a marine conservation organization, collaborated on the second in a series of community-driven dialogues on People-Planet Connection. The goal: to uncover and amplify the learnings and impact of five national PHE networks.

On October 28, Knowledge SUCCESS and FP2030 hosted the second session in our final set of discussions in the Connecting Conversations series.

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.
When public health officials make decisions, they are faced with competing demands on financial resources, conflicting interests, and the imperative to meet national health goals. Decision-makers need tools to help them establish a healthy market, particularly in resource-constrained settings.

USAID’s Advancing Partners & Communities (APC) project in Uganda implemented a multisectoral approach to family planning. What lessons from APC’s work can be applied to similar future efforts?
