USAID HEALTH IMPLEMENTING KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT NETWORK LAUNCHES IN NOVEMBER 2015

The Knowledge Management Network (KM Network) is the official Knowledge Management Community of Practice mandated by USAID|Ghana to coordinate and implement KM ideas, promote learning, and sharing and serve as the KM advisory group among its implementing partners (IPs). The group was officially launched and had its first quarterly meeting on November 30, 2015 at the Conference Hall of Systems for Health (S4H) Project in Accra. Its membership comprises KM focal persons from all USAID|Ghana Health projects. These focal persons are either full KM Practitioners or Technical staff with KM as an additional responsibility. The group meets quarterly and usually on the second Thursday after the quarterly meetings of the Chief of Party Forum.

This community seeks to achieve the following outcomes among USAID|Ghana Health Implementing Partners, MoH/GHS as well as local and international stakeholders:

1. To promote Knowledge management among USAID health implementing partners using the collaborating, learning and adapting (CLA) approach.
2. To provide a platform for USAID health implementing partners, Ghana Health Service, other health development partners, professionals and interest groups to share ideas and create knowledge.
3. To promote coordination and collaboration on knowledge management (KM) approaches among partners.
4. To make data, information and knowledge more readily accessible to all health stakeholders in Ghana and beyond.
