KMS Analyses for Knowledge Management and Decision Making

  • The United States Government Action Plan on Children in Adversity was developed based on KMS’s evidence review process, which culminated in the December 2011 U.S. Government Evidence Summit on Protecting Children Outside of Family Care. Five additional papers with an emphasis on evidence reviewed for the Summit are forthcoming in Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal.
  • Issue Briefs were developed by KMS for World AIDS Day through synthesizing information on two topics.
  • The Eastern Europe & Eurasia (E&E) Family Planning Legacy Report [PDF, 4.7MB] highlights the success of USAID’s investment in family planning in the E&E region. It incorporates historical information and data from the region in a user-friendly document.
  • Annual Performance Reports: Each year KMS analyzes the latest data for maternal and child health, population and family planning and nutrition for the Annual Performance Report to Congress, which demonstrates USAID’s progress across each technical area.
