High quality public service announcements are produced in local dialects to reach impacted communities. Fictional radio dramas complement the spots and allow for issues to be addressed more comprehensively.
Partner stations are producing call-in shows that allow for conversation about COVID-19. Through virtual sessions, Team Survive is training CRS staff to provide accurate health guidance to callers.
Radio and social media content are converted to SMS messages that reinforce learning and reach audiences with low literacy rates.
Impact and audience engagement are monitored using a rapid assessment, mobile phone tool.
