Awareness raising and attention to prioritized populations (youths and children, originary peoples)

National Institute of Radio and Television of Peru (IRTP)
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The National Institute of Radio and Television of Peru provides television content addressed to Peruvian children and youths, promoting innovation, dialogue, representation and integration, and strengthening Peruvian identity in the child and youth community.

It also fosters access to content in originary languages by removing barriers to access information in favor of remote populations nationwide, in their own languages and with information of interest for them.

In this connection, inter-institutional cooperation agreements are promoted for the flow of quality television and/or radio content in line with that established in the IRTP's mission, through coordination and communication with the embassies of the countries with which the agreements have been reached.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

The IPE channel has become established as a platform with an audiovisual and information quality above the average, which has earned it national and international recognition, positioning itself as a reference point for public television and communication for children/youth in the region. Also, the number of subscribers in their social networks have been increasing progressively.

To date, they offer programs (especially informative programs and magazines) in the following originary languages: Quechua, Aymara, Ashaninka, Shipibo Conibo, vindicating such languages. It should be noted that some of these programs have won awards.

Through inter-institutional cooperation agreements, quality audiovisual contents have been acquired and exchanged non-profit with other institutions similar to the IRTP from other countries, allowing us to broadcast such content--where part of the culture, music or other aspects of those countries is shown--through our signals, for the benefit of all Peruvians.
