Watch: how BBC Media Action works in Africa
Our projects in Africa
Using insight from our response to the Ebola outbreak we're building awareness about malaria for those most at risk, using radio, TV, social media and community outreach.
Communication is a vital form of humanitarian aid so we've teamed up with the BBC Somali Service and Radio Ergo to help people survive, cope and recover.
In 2018, we supported radio stations in Tanzania to help expectant and new parents give their children the healthiest possible start in life.
