In January, IBP Network, hosted at WHO, and Knowledge SUCCESS put out a call for field-based implementation stories that documented experiences and lessons learned when implementing High Impact Practices (HIPs) in family planning.
We were very impressed by the quantity and quality of the 110 submissions received. Submissions covered twenty-one High Impact Practices in Family Planning being implemented in more than 40 countries around the globe.
Of the 110 submissions received, the review panel identified 15 winners.
These stories will highlight various programs implementing High Impact Practices in family planning and reproductive health. Stories include personal details on the challenges faced, processes used to identify and prioritize interventions, efforts to use WHO guidelines and other tools, and lessons learned when implementing high impact practices in family planning. These stories are meant to highlight local experiences, share best practices, and inspire those working in FP/RH programs around the world.
Over the coming months authors will work closely with IBP and Knowledge SUCCESS to develop their stories and publish them on the WHO and Knowledge SUCCESS websites as well as here on the IBP platform.
