Review on radio health education concludes

Together with partners the Ministry of Health and Sanitation over the weekend concluded phase six of its UNICEF supported programs on health education, in Kono and Moyamba Districts. The interactive radio education consists of over 40 community radio stations to improve public awareness on public health concerns in order to effect behavior change. Acting Health Education, Program Manager, Harold Thomas, said civil society organizations in health closely collaborated and reported monitoring of each phase. “The interactive radio sessions are done in phases covering a three month period, followed by a review process,” Thomas noted. During the review process, Station Managers were urged to allocate additional slots, apart from the paid for airtime. Civil society representatives also reported on investigations carried to ascertain whether the radio programs are impacting positively on the people.
