Summary: KM practitioners have a lot to share – and a lot to learn from each other. The GHKC has developed a series of case studies informed by real life experiences implementing KM activities within health and development organizations. These case studies highlight strategies, challenges, successes, lessons learned, and recommendations for others.

This case study focuses on a website created for the Kenyan Division of Reproductive Health (DRH). Kenyan health professionals often lack ready access to the latest reproductive health policies, guidelines, and references needed to deliver high-quality health services. In addition, the general public lacks awareness about reproductive health services provided by the Kenya DRH. The DRH responded to these knowledge gaps by redesigning and updating their national website.
