In Kenya, BBC Media Action is working with local radio stations to develop and produce programmes that address water, sanitation and hygiene-related issues. After three seasons of producing the national TV and radio discussion show, Sema Kenya (Kenya Speaks), BBC Media Action is supporting the national broadcaster KBC to develop its own topical discussion programme, Beyond the Headlines. Sema Kenya brought audiences face-to-face with public officials to debate the big issues of the day, and research showed that the programme helped individuals to hold government officials to account during the 2013 Kenya election. Previous work in Kenya also included the youth radio show Kimasomaso ('To speak out boldly’) which tackled sexual and reproductive health issues and investigated health services.
