KM Champion Innovators announced
Implementation period for KM innovations
The Pitch is a series of regional competitions held in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia in which a panel of judges awards up to $50,000 USD to knowledge management (KM) champions working in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) at the national and regional level.
Knowledge management—the way we access, share and use information—is one of our most valuable assets to address FP/RH challenges.
What we know impacts how we take action. And so how we manage knowledge can affect individuals, communities, and, ultimately, the health systems that exist across cultures. Innovations in knowledge management can improve coordination and enhance meaningful learning among FP/RH professionals.
