5 I. Situation Analysis PAHO/WHO s Knowledge Management and Communication Area (KMC) is responsible for developing strategies, policies, methodologies, standards and services to enable knowledge management and communication functions throughout PAHO/WHO and the countries of the Americas Region. There is a growing consensus that access to information, knowledge, analysis, and scientific evidence on health is essential for economic, social, scientific and technological development. It is particularly important for the development of health systems, continued improvement in quality of care, evidence-based decision making at the collective and individual levels and to meet the information demands of emergency preparedness and response. Likewise, communication and knowledge management are one of the most powerful tools to promote the changes (individual, social and political) that lead to achievement and maintenance of health. Several communication and knowledge management areas contribute to this field, including, access to evidence-based information and new technologies, behavior change communication, social mobilization, media relations, social marketing, and risk communication. Substantial progress has been made in the development of KMC policies, standards and procedures in the last years. This has significantly contributed to the increased efficiency of the work of PAHO staff and also Member States which benefited from KMC technical cooperation. In spite of this progress, the following challenges have been identified for implementation of KMC activities in the Region and within the PAHO Secretariat: The region misses many opportunities to capture and promote the knowledge capital of Member States in the area of public health; The use of communication by Member States as a tool for the achievement and maintenance of health has been limited and its impact has been less than optimal; Vulnerable populations and underprivileged communities in the Region have particularly unequal access to health information and communication; Partners, donors, decision makers and clients of PAHO/WHO are often unfamiliar with the role, achievements, impact and opportunities created by the work of the organization; PAHO/WHO lacks or needs to update several policies, standards and procedures, including ehealth, elearning, editorial policy, institutional repository, corporate identity, and taxonomy, among others; PAHO/WHO s staff often lacks skills in critical KMC processes, including developing and sharing lessons learned, using evidence for decision making and using of communication to promote public health policies; The incorporation of KMC activities in the planning process is inconsistent and often depends on individual skills of staff and of personal interest managers of the PWR, Centers, Areas and Projects; In spite of advances, there is still no interoperability and join search capabilities for the platforms of internet, intranet and external and ensure of all PAHO/WHO sites; PAHO/WHO is not always able to provide optimum KMC support to Member States facing health emergencies; Knowledge Management and Communication Strategy for all PAHO/WHO entities Page 5

6 Further efforts are needed to better integrate BIREME resources with the rest of the organization. II. PAHO/WHOs Guiding Principles for Knowledge Management and Communication Primary guiding principle 1 The primary guiding principle is to ensure technical excellence in PAHO/WHO Content production and high quality standards in PAHO/WHO information and communication products, projects and services and easy and equitable access to evidence-based information products and services. Operational guiding principles 2 Health information will be treated as a regional public good that is essential for economic and social development and for a just, equitable and healthy society. PASB will use an open access philosophy with respect to all electronic content produced by the Organization; Information that stimulates decision-makers in the Region will be given priority, and the transfer of appropriate technology into health care practice, which is suitable for adaptation and use by various levels of health workers in Member States, will be promoted; Knowledge and information intended to meet the needs of Member States will be shared and communicated in order to address priority problems and issues affecting their populations and supporting the goal of Health for All. This information will often deal with topics or target audiences both covered and not covered by commercial channels. The information will aim to provide information to the neediest, especially in developing countries; Print, audiovisual and electronic media will be used for publishing and disseminating information. The Web and social media platforms will become key tools for advancing knowledge sharing and continually adopting new methods and technologies; The decentralized production and operation of information sources, connected through networks with direct and universal access, and free from geographical or scheduling restrictions, will be promoted. This is the case with PAHO s Virtual Health Library; Information will be disseminated in PAHO s official languages, especially Spanish and English, and encourage translation by others into additional languages, when needed; Linkages and interoperability between information sources involved in public health within and outside the Bureau will be expanded and promoted, where appropriate. 1 Presented and approved by PAHO s EXM, August 15, MODERNIZATION OF PASB MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM - (PMIS) - 50TH DIRECTING COUNCIL - 62ND SESSION OF THE REGIONAL COMMITTEE Knowledge Management and Communication Strategy for all PAHO/WHO entities Page 6

7 Decentralized production of scientific information products will be promoted when those products are proven to adhere to the highest quality standards and are also in accordance with cost-effective procedures; PASB technical staff will cooperate with countries in strengthening their knowledge management and communication policies, and capacity in support of Health for All; Proposals for new technical publications will be screened by a publications committee at the PASB, in order to ensure that publications: are in line with PAHO s policies, reflect its priorities, meet the needs of Member States, have been properly peer reviewed, and contain information that is likely to be of long-term relevance; Manuscripts accepted for publication will undergo a rigorous editing process that adheres to industry standards to ensure that the final publication is of the highest quality, both technically and editorially; Content published by PASB will be classified and indexed using a PAHO official taxonomy. III. PAHO/WHO s Vision for KMC National and regional policies established to promote free and equitable access to evidencebased information on health as part of Human Rights; A region with equitable access to information, innovation, networking, resource optimization, and proper use of information and communication technologies to achieve interoperability between sources and of health information systems; The lack of access to health information is considered within the principle of nondiscrimination in health and should be integral part of the concept of access to health services; PAHO facilitates the dialogue between Member States and the monitoring body of international human rights treaties to strengthen access to health information; Health information networks of the region help leverage the social capital available; Health workers in the region fully capable of operating in the Information Society; Development partners and donors funding projects to democratize access to health information sources; Health workers from underprivileged locations with open and equal access to sources of scientific and technical information; Underprivileged locations connected to the Internet.

8 IV. Objective of the KMC Strategy The objective of the Strategy is to guide the Organization in the adoption of knowledge management and communication practices, policies, standards and procedures. V. Scope of the KMC Strategy This strategy is for all PAHO/WHO entities and is associated with the following products and services: ehealth elearning PRODUCTS AND SERVICES MOST COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH THIS STRATEGY Library and information networks Marketing (campaigns and special events) Scientific information & communication Social communication Editorial services Media relations Social networks Innovation Knowledge transfer Public information Risk communication Virtual & Web-based collaboration Web & Intra-Extranet services VI. Implementation Approaches and New Paradigms A number of new paradigms are considered critical in the implementation Strategy. These new paradigms represent new contemporary approaches to Knowledge Management and Communication and have implications for several of the Key Performance Targets enumerated in this document. The new paradigms are summarized in the table below: OLD PARADIGMS Communication to share information Copyright Message One central message Production Proprietary sources Publication Sale of publications Target audience passive NEW PARADIGMS Communication to generate change Creative commons Dialogue Several coherent and articulated messages Creation of norms and standards Open sources Content production Open access to publications Different actors are full participants Unidirectional communication Multidirectional communication (2.0) Aggregated data Data disaggregated according to gender, age, ethnicity and socio-economic status Knowledge Management and Communication Strategy for all PAHO/WHO entities Page 8
