Our work on health

BBC Media Action works with media and communication to provide health information and explore social and cultural norms that affect good health in some of the poorest places in the world. Our programmes aim to build people's confidence to take action in the interests of their own health and the health of their families.

We provide opportunities for discussion that build social support for change, particularly amongst family and community members, and groups who have control over allocation of resources. We are also using media to provide a space to hold to account those providing health services and developing health policies.
