The Knowledge for Health Project and FP2020 created Family Planning Voices (FP Voices) in 2015 to document and share stories from people around the world who are passionate about family planning. In 2016, Part I of the evaluation of FP Voices found that the initiative positively influenced knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy related to family planning, and strengthened the global family planning community. For young people in particular, FP Voices may provide a space to share and hone one’s unique voice.
In 2015, the Knowledge for Health Project and Family Planning 2020 created Family Planning Voices (FP Voices) to document and share real stories from people around the world who are passionate about family planning. At the time, there had been no systematic investigation documenting the impact of a storytelling approach in family planning. This study sought to answer the following research questions:
The Knowledge for Health Project and Family Planning 2020 created Family Planning Voices in 2015 to document and share real stories from people around the world who are passionate about family planning. This storytelling toolkit offers tips and tools we have learned along the way to help anyone collect stories of their colleagues and communities and share them on Family Planning Voices’ global platform.
Family Planning Voices, a global storytelling initiative led by the Knowledge for Health Project and Family Planning 2020, and supported by USAID, asked members of the Ouagadougou Partnership (OP) what makes this regional network so vital to their efforts. This booklet presents stories from the OP that reflect its members' passionate commitment to women and families and shed light on the incomparable benefits of OP membership.
Our world is interconnected. These photos and stories describe an approach known as Population, Health, and Environment (PHE), which focuses on the relationship between human health and environmental health. PHE programs improve primary health care services, particularly family planning and reproductive health, while also helping communities conserve biodiversity, manage natural resources, and develop sustainable livelihoods. When these issues are addressed together, communities thrive.
The Knowledge for Health Project conducted a qualitative study to assess the components that facilitated or hindered the Costed Implementation Plan Resource Kit knowledge partnership and its perceived outcomes. Components that facilitated success included accountability, clear roles, dedication, integrity, trust, dependability, competence, and respect/recognition. Components that hindered success included time and resources.
A Knowledge for Health Project landscape analysis assessed how programs use mobile health (mHealth) interventions to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in low- and middle-income countries. The majority (82%) of programs use mHealth as a health promotion tool to facilitate knowledge sharing and behavior change to improve adolescent SRH. Nearly 20% of programs use mHealth to link adolescents to SRH and family planning services and to HIV care and treatment. Several mHealth programs started in one country, but evolved to become multi-country programs.
Participatory events such as share fairs present opportunities for participants to discuss challenges and ideas to improve their work. How these events influence knowledge sharing and organizational learning capacities had not been systematically documented until the Knowledge for Health Project evaluated the facilitation and impact of a knowledge management share fair. The share fair aimed to strengthen regional networks among health and development professionals in East Africa.
To better understand how integrated programing within HIV can impact health outcomes, the Knowledge for Health Project conducted literature scans to produce a synthesis of the literature. The synthesis revealed that the integration of HIV prevention, care, and treatment into existing health services has tremendous potential to strengthen systems, improve efficiencies, ensure sustainability, and broaden the impact of health investments.
To understand how various learning modes can affect knowledge retention and application, the Knowledge for Health Project conducted a cross-sectional study. This February 2017 research brief documents that study, which determined that blended learning is an important strategy to strengthen learning outcomes and application of knowledge among health professionals in lower- and middle-income countries.
