Knowledge Management

We all need access to the latest, evidence-based information to do our jobs well.

In a given work day, health professionals — from community health workers and physicians to program managers and policymakers — come across many potential sources of information. Often, we don’t have time to sort out high-quality, evidence-based knowledge and information, or we don’t know how to start. At the same time, there is a real geographic imbalance when it comes to information access and availability. Where people live and work determines whether they can access, and use, the most current tools and resources.

At CCP, our knowledge management approaches set us apart because we use behavioral science and design-thinking principles and tools like automation software to consider each person’s learning preferences and connect them to information and resources that are unique to their needs. 

Our goal is to make it easier for people to find, share and use high-quality health information. 

We partner with established groups and local champions to encourage routine learning, sharing and knowledge use up, down and across the health system. We create opportunities for unexpected, and even unconventional, conversations to happen across sectors and outside typical networks — because new perspectives spark new ideas.

Knowledge management is a critical tool that makes a real difference.


Family planning professionals are always working to find ways to improve their programs. Yet technical capacity in knowledge management remains limited, and there is a lack of funding for knowledge management in family planning programs.

Inspired by the television show “Shark Tank,” CCP’s Knowledge SUCCESS project in 2021 launched The Pitch, a regional competition to find and fund innovative knowledge management ideas for family planning. Four knowledge management champion innovators from Africa and Asia will be awarded up to $50,000 USD to implement their unique ideas. The winners will also receive KM mentorship, training and tools from CCP during the implementation period to further develop their capacity in KM for family planning and reproductive health.
