    The Idea Lab provides a chance for K4Health to hear feedback directly from users of our products and services as well as people who are new to K4Health’s offerings. This feedback on the content and the usability of our products helps us continually enhance K4Health's existing resources and develop useful, relevant new content.

    Follow-up interviews with selected Idea Lab participants are the source for our Idea Lab stories--real people using K4Health's tools and resources in their work.

    Organizations can use the Knowledge Management (KM) Index, a new evidence-based assessment tool, to measure capacity in four fundamental KM practice areas:

    1. Organizational structure (KM vision and strategy),
    2. Learning opportunities (professional development),
    3. Internal KM culture (seeking out and sharing knowledge), and
    4. KM for global health (efforts to advance global health agenda).

    Digital Storytelling for Change: The Art of the Interview

    A new assessment of the impact of the global storytelling initiative Family Planning Voices shows that stories and storytelling have the potential to change health knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. On June 7, 2018, K4Health and the International Youth Alliance on Family Planning (IYAFP) hosted a skills-building webinar to share key tips for capturing an essential story element—the interview—with a mobile phone.

    On May 22, 2018, Family Planning 2020, Health Policy Plus (HP+), Palladium, and the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project hosted Monitoring Matters: Tracking Progress Toward Family Planning Goals to discuss innovative tools within the Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) that are being used to help country governments accelerate their progress towards meeting family planning goals.

    During this webinar, Family Planning 2020’s Eva Ros provided an overview of CIPs and the Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) Resource Kit, and discussed how countries at both national and sub-national levels are currently using CIPs. This tool, available on FP2020’s website, features guidance documents, resources, and best practices based on hands-on experience to assist program planners, ministry representatives, and technical assistance providers to go through the CIP process.

    The Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) Resource Kit features guidance documents, tools, and best practices to assist program planners, ministry representatives, and technical assistance providers to go through the CIP process. Since the resource kit launched in 2015, we have gained even more insight into what tools can help countries accelerate progress toward family planning goals. The USAID-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) and Knowledge for Health (K4Health) projects have recently published a new set of tools for the CIP Resource Kit, which are based on practical experiences and lessons learned from CIP development, execution, and monitoring.

    Building Better Programs Through Knowledge Management 3

    In February 2018, K4Health hosted a webinar to introduce the new Knowledge Management Collection.

    On Thursday February 8, 2018, K4Health co-hosted the webinar, “Building Better Programs Through Knowledge Management” with guest presenters from Pathfinder International and Ipas.

    When health program staff and practitioners can manage and share knowledge effectively, they can deliver better results. Yet many projects and programs don’t have systems in place to share critical knowledge and translate lessons learned, which can result in missed opportunities, duplication, and wasted time and money.

    The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project has developed the Knowledge Management Collection, a family of resources designed for global health professionals to help them understand, use, and train others on knowledge management approaches, tools, and techniques. The KM Collection includes practical guides, comprehensive training materials, and a step-by-step framework.
