This Digital Health Resource Library houses three legacy collections previously maintained by the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project. K4Health’s work was made possible by the support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) . K4Health was supported from 2008-2019 by USAID's Office of Population and Reproductive HealthBureau for Global Health, under cooperative agreements with the Johns Hopkins University. K4Health was implemented by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) in collaboration with FHI 360, Management Sciences for Health (MSH), and IntraHealth International. The K4Health Project ended in September 2019.
