What if your knowledge management innovation was the next game changer for family planning programs in your country, or beyond?

 

 

Today we’re announcing The Pitch, a series of regional competitions that places stakeholders in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia at the center of designing and implementing knowledge management innovations. Four KM Champion Innovators will be awarded up to USD $50,000 each, through subawards, to implement their innovative ideas for changing the way we share our knowledge and experiences in the FP/RH sector. 

 

 

We asked Ellen Starbird, USAID's Director of the Office of Population and Reproductive Health, what excites her about knowledge management for FP/RH and why she believes The Pitch can transform how we approach FP/RH programs. Click on the image below to watch the video.

 

 

We invite you to join us for our launch event: an opportunity for interested participants to hear important guidelines, ask questions, and review the competition timeline.

  • Thursday, January 14, 2021
  • 3:00PM-4:00 PM EAT | 5:30PM-6:30PM IST | 7:00 AM-8:00 AM EST
