Content Adaptation Guidebook

The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project developed this adaptation guide to expand the reach, usefulness, and use of evidence-based global health content, specifically as it relates to family planning. It is intended for use by program managers and implementers working in the health and development sectors who are interested in taking advantage of openly accessible health content—without having to develop content from scratch—to better serve their clients and communities.

KM for Global Health: Recommended Readings and Social Networks

This supplement includes a list of recommending readings (and multimedia presentations) related to knowledge management for global health programs. It also includes a short list of top social networks that interested health professionals can join to keep updated on the latest developments in knowledge management and connect with like-minded peers and experts. 

Sample Project Agreement: FP Voices

As you assemble your KM team, it is important to agree to roles and responsibilities to help set expectations from the outset and potentially avoid any conflict down the road. It may be helpful for the team to draft a simple project agreement that clearly articulates who the members are, what the goal of the project is, how you will define success, and how you will divide labor and make decisions. This document provides a sample project agreement write-up from the FP Voices activity within the K4Health project.

K4Health Theory Primer: Diffusion of Innovations

Global health achievements require highly innovative knowledge management approaches. The diffusion of innovations theory helps explain and predict factors that influence the adoption of public health innovations. This guide provides tangible ways to apply the theory to ensure effective sharing and use of new health knowledge, guidance, and practice among health professionals, particularly program managers and knowledge management practitioners.

Select Theories Relevant to KM

This is a list of theories used by the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project in its knowledge management (KM) work. The theories presented include: Bloom’s taxonomy of learning, diffusion of innovations, ideation, and stages of change. The table lists the focus, key concepts, and KM application for each theory.

KM Tools and Techniques Matrix

The KM Tools and Techniques Matrix provides a visual depiction of the four broad approaches that different KM tools and techniques use in the KM cycle to generate, capture, and share knowledge:

Global Health KM Logic Model

The Knowledge Management for Global Health Logic Model was developed by the Global Health Knowledge Collaborative to assist with planning and evaluating knowledge management (KM) interventions in global health programs. It provides a visual depiction of the relationships between the resources, processes, outputs, and outcomes of KM interventions in global health programs.

Post-Training Evaluation Questionnaire Guide

To evaluate a training workshop, it is common to ask training participants to complete an evaluation form at the close of training to get their feedback on positive aspects of the training as well as aspects that could be improved. Included in this guide are sample questions a trainer can use to develop such a post-training evaluation form. Also included in this guide are sample questions the training team can use to conduct an internal after-action review. An after-action review allows a team to analyze what worked well and what could be done better in the future. 

KM Strategy Template

This is a template to use when developing a knowledge management strategy document. It includes sections such as introduction and background, goals and objectives, guiding principles, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation.
