Community of Practice


The IVMF Community of Practice (CoP) is a collective learning network dedicated to sharing insights and best practices among community service providers from all over the country. Together, the CoP raises the level of quality, transparency, and accountable service delivery while building upon providers’ professional competencies to serve clients and build greater organizational capacity to extend their reach.  Communities of Practice operate at three levels: local, regional, and national.
