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.
