    We’re doing all this good work: What are we learning and how do we share it?

    Over the course of a global health project, team members learn a lot about what successfully improves health and what doesn’t. Capturing and sharing this knowledge is essential to designing and implementing more effective programs in the future.

    The concept is simpler than the name suggests: To improve communities and the livelihoods of their people.

    The approach is called Population, Health and Environment, PHE for short. PHE programs are specifically designed to promote modern family planning, encourage environmental conservation and improve health outcomes by creating a package of interventions such as pairing education about dwindling fisheries with education around contraception and malaria prevention.

    Meeting the Knowledge Needs of My Team: How Do I Get Started?

    You and your team have established a shared goal. Maybe you have agreed to increase the contraceptive prevalence rate in Bangladesh, eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV in South Africa, or prevent malaria across sub-Saharan Africa through vector control strategies. To accomplish the goal, your team needs access to a wide variety of knowledge to outline the scope of the problem, understand what others are doing, determine what intervention to use, and plan for implementation.
