In August 2016, K4Health tested the WhatsApp Messenger platform as a mode to deliver family planning continued professional development training content to Kenyan health workers and promote knowledge exchange and discussion. A seven-week training program on healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy (HTSP) was designed and delivered to 160 participants. The findings from this training activity reveal that WhatsApp is well-received as a platform for continuing professional development. Implementation of the activity also led to a number of lessons learned around training setup, facilitation, and active participation.
