The Global Health Knowledge Collaborative

The Global Health Knowledge Collaborative (GHKC)

The Knowledge Management for Health and Development Toolkit builds on the knowledge sharing of the Global Health Knowledge Collaborative (GHKC), which began in 2010 (originally called the Knowledge Management Working Group) as a collaborative forum for sharing and synthesizing knowledge. The goals of this community of practice are to:

  • Serve as a platform to share ideas and KM research findings
  • Collect case studies documenting experiences with KM in global health,
  • Ask for feedback on KM-related products and services,
  • Promote the use of KM-related products, services, and approaches in global health programs, and
  • Advocate for the importance of KM for organizations and projects.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, this group met face-to-face in Baltimore, MD, or Washington, DC, USA, a few times a year, with additional participants joining by phone or Skype. We held our first fully-remote meeting via Zoom in April 2020. At our meetings, knowledge management practitioners discuss KM approaches with guest experts; share lessons learned from recent practice; and determine what tools and resources would be useful for us to develop as a group.
