From June 17-19, 2019, K4Health Director Tara Sullivan and USAID LEARN Chief of Party Piers Bocock will once again offer their course, "Knowledge Management for Effective Global Health Programs." It is offered through the Summer Institute of the Health, Behavior, and Society Department (HBS) of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH).

Information about JHSPH tuition fees is available at the Summer Institute tuition page.

This acclaimed three-day in-person course has earned "Excellence in Teaching" awards for both instructors, and uses participatory approaches to:

  • Define knowledge management and related principles
  • Explain challenges to implementing KM programs
  • Help determine the best KM approaches for real-life public health programs

Students will also join a global network of alumni who share experiences and resources related to using the learned knowledge management and organizational learning practices in their work.

This three-day course will be held in person at the JHSPH HBS Summer Institute building, Hampton House, in East Baltimore, Maryland, USA.


Hi. It is interesting to know that you offer such a course. I am a young person in Sierra Leone West Africa and I work to educate youth and adolescent on sexual and reproductive health and family planning. Is there any way you can assist me to get this course online, please? Even if it is the materials let me read through. Please.

Hello Fayia--
