Core Activities

The GHKC has a number of Task Teams formed around a key product, event, or other deliverable. Some Task Teams disband after the product, event, or other deliverable is completed, while others continue to meet as their activities are ongoing in nature. The following task teams successfully completed these activities:

GHKC Task Teams

M&E Task Team
The purpose of the M&E Task Team is to improve design, implementation, and measurement of KM programs. The group has published the Guide to Monitoring and Evaluating Knowledge Management in Global Health Programs (update to HIPNet’s Guide to Monitoring and Evaluation of Health Information Products and Services) with systemic guidance for KM project design and M&E (e.g., frameworks/models, indicators, and methods). 
If you have any questions about this task team, contact Saori Ohkubo at saori.ohkubo@jhu.edu.

KM Toolkit Task Team
The purpose of the KM Toolkit Task Team is to gather relevant, up-to-date KM related resources that have been carefully selected by KM experts within the GHKC (see the Knowledge Management for Health and Development Toolkit). The Toolkit Task Team is charged with periodically reviewing the Toolkit and adding, updating, or removing resources to keep the Toolkit current.
If you have any questions about this task team, contact Lorine Ghabranious at lghabranious@msh.org.

KM Case Studies Task Team
The KM Case Study Task Team completed a collection of 2-4 page stories documenting KM activities/programs. The purpose of these case studies is to supplement the tools and resources in the KM Toolkit with real life experiences. The case studies are posted to the Knowledge Management for Health and Development Toolkit as well as the Resources page of this website.
If you have any questions about this task team, or if you have any ideas for KM case studies, contact Sarah Harlan at sarah.harlan@jhu.edu.

KM Advocacy Task Team
The GHKC’s Advocacy Task Team works to increase awareness of KM tools and approaches for global health practitioners. The group also provides venues for increasing visibility of the GHKC. The group holds a series of KM webinars (see the Resources page for webinar recordings), and continues to look at conferences and other opportunities to discuss KM within the global health context.
