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.
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.
