Knowledge Management (KM) in Global Health Programs

The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project published the Knowledge Management (KM) in Global Health Programs course on the USAID Global Health eLearning (GHeL) Center. This course provides a basic understanding of what KM is and why it is important to the field of global health. Learners will become familiar with KM practices and techniques to overcome the challenge of getting essential, evidence-based knowledge into programs and practice and facilitating exchange of expertise and experience among health practitioners, programmers and policy makers to improve service quality, program effectiveness, and health outcomes.By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the key elements of KM
  • List common KM processes
  • Describe how KM can address some of today’s global health challenges
  • Identify the key steps in implementing a KM initiative
  • Name at least three KM interventions and techniques
  • Recall at least three examples of indicators that can be used to assess KM interventions

To take the course, you will need to register and/or login to GHeL. It’s fast, easy, and free and requires only a valid e-mail address.
