Watch: how our teams are using radio to improve family health in rural parts of Ethiopia.


BBC Media Action has been working in Ethiopia since 2001, strengthening local media capacity and fostering long-term positive change. Since April 2013, we have been producing two radio shows - Jember and Biiftuu Jireenya - to encourage better reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health. Other programmes using radio help raise awareness about indoor air pollution - and improving resilience to extreme weather. Previous work has included: Abugida, a radio programme for young people that helped break the silence around sexual health; Catalysing the Girl Effect, a series of community screenings of documentary films following inspiring young women; and Filega, a radio drama which covered livelihoods and HIV issues.
