In response to identified limitations in knowledge exchange between the country hubs, SNI initiated the Share-Net International Rapid Improvement Model (SHIRIM) in 2017. This model sought to enhance the understanding of knowledge translation strategies, build the capacity of participating staff in knowledge management and brokering, and foster collaboration among the hubs. This report evaluated the progress of the model in its third iteration: SHIRIM III.

SHIRIM III emerged as a subsequent iteration of SHIRIM. This 18-month action learning process spanned from February 2022 to March 2023 and integrated the Collaborative Approach and Systems Thinking. The trajectory centered on the existing country hubs in Bangladesh, Jordan, and Burundi, and the new hubs in Ethiopia, Colombia, and Burkina Faso that were launched in 2022. SHIRIM III aimed to explore strategies for moving newly acquired knowledge around SRHR information and education towards policy influencing and practice improvement.

The SHIRIM III Evaluation was conducted by RAISE Global Health. The evaluation utilized feminist evaluation methodology with a focus on qualitative research to examine SHIRIM III’s impact on capacity strengthening, knowledge exchange, and policy/practice influence, addressing a number of underlying assumptions. It also evaluated SHIRIM III based on the OECD-DAC criteria of relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability.
