For rural, low income people living in Sub-Saharan Africa, access to health information is limited. Most remain unaware of their health rights, and educational outreach is hampered by low levels of literacy.
That’s where community radio steps in. Radio remains one of the most popular tools in homes across Sub-Saharan Africa for the rich or poor, literate or illiterate, adult or young, both in cities and rural areas. Radio broadcasting contributes to improved health outcomes by providing information about health rights, risks, disease prevention and better health. Radio can also stimulate positive social and behavioural change, providing a focus for community dialogue, increasing tolerance and decreasing discrimination. By donating as little as 25$, you are helping important information reaching the people who need it most.
