Although FP/RH professionals recognize the importance of sharing information across projects and organizations to improve FP/RH programs,
we sometimes face barriers to sharing this information. We might lack the time to do this or we aren’t sure if the information shared will be useful. Sharing information about programmatic failures has even more barriers because of the associated stigma. So
what can we do to motivate the FP/RH workforce to share more information about what works and what doesn’t work in FP/RH?
Knowledge SUCCESS conducted behavioral economics experiments with FP/RH professionals in Africa and Asia to answer this question. Join us
as we explore how we can nudge the FP/RH workforce to share information about program successes and failures, answering such questions as:
Are there certain types of behavioral nudges that work better than others to motivate FP/RH professionals to share information generally, and to share information about
program failures specifically?
Are there any gender differences with these behavioral nudges?
Is there a body of terms that we can use to talk about failures that is less stigmatizing than the term “failure”?
