How to Integrate Equity in KM

Equity in KM

About this training module

What is equity in KM and how can we achieve it? This course introduces the concept and provides guidance on how to integrate equity throughout KM systems and processes.

How we manage knowledge—and eventually decide how to use it—can affect individuals, families, communities, health systems, and policies. Therefore, paying close attention to equity in KM is important to manage, share, and use knowledge in ways that are fair to all groups of the health workforce.


Equity in KM has been achieved when there is an absence of unfair, avoidable, and remediable differences in knowledge creation, access, sharing, and use among groups of health workforce members, whether those groups are defined socially, economically, or environmentally.
