BKMI eHealth Pilot Documentary (full version)

The Knowledge for Health project is pleased to share with you the BKMI eHealth pilot documentary, which describes a key Knowledge Management and Behavior Change Communication project with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) in Bangladesh. In this documentary, you will meet Rafiq and Kawsar, two field workers from Chittagong and Sylhet, respectively, who used netbook computers loaded with digital resources to help improve their own knowledge and skill around family planning, maternal, newborn and child health, and nutrition, and begin to change health behaviors in their communities. You will also hear from key officials of the MoHFW, whose support from inception was key to the pilot’s success. In this video, we share some of our lessons learned and hope to inspire you with how you may be able to appropriately leverage the use of ICT as a knowledge management tool to empower field workers and improve the health of communities in the countries where you work.
