A Guide to Identifying and Documenting Best Practices in Family Planning Programmes

The introduction to the guide states that, “One of the significant barriers to knowledge-sharing and reapplication of experience is the limited culture of information and knowledge documentation and sharing. Although relevant knowledge may exist in people’s minds, it cannot always be tapped or it may exist in formats that limit people’s ability to know about it or find it. This underscores the need for decision-makers, health professionals, communities and WHO staff to be able to find, use and share knowledge on experiences of what works and lessons learned.”

This guide outlines steps to identifying and documenting FP best practices. It defines best practices, sets out criteria for determining what are best practices, and gives some examples of best practices in the field.
