Posted on: 19/09/2017

Community radio broadcasts in Zanzibar are bringing awareness to gender-based violence and proper childcare practices as part of their localized focus. Targeted radio programs have contributed to significant improvement in the communal perception of violence against women, as well as the establishment of local infrastructure to resolve reported incidents. Informational broadcasts are additionally educating young women and mothers on important pregnancy issues and early infant care.
