IMPROVING CHILD HEALTH THROUGH RADIO
This website is designed to help radio producers in Afghanistan make health programmes that improve and save children’s lives.
In Afghanistan, almost one in 10 children die before their fifth birthday – one of the highest rates in the world. But many could be saved by families, communities and society taking action to ensure healthy lives and wellbeing for all children.
Ghamai is a radio show produced by BBC Media Action in Afghanistan, covering a range of family health topics including vaccinations, nutrition and breastfeeding. This website will help you draw on the Ghamai team’s experience to make similar programmes at your own station.
You will find key health information to share with your listeners, ideas for how to turn these into lively programmes, and tips on producing the most effective broadcasts. Use this resource to create successful programmes that make a positive difference to your community.
