The Department of Health working with the NCRF and 60 Community Radio Stations in South Africa are currently running a 30minute Health Awareness Program every week. The programs started in February this year and runs for 12months, the purpose of the programs is to make people aware of health issues as well as preventative measures and cures. The programs are broadcasted 4 times per month, and are being broadcasted in all 11 official languages. The 60 Community Radio Stations participating in this project is based in all 9 provinces and the radio stations usually broadcast in the language that is most spoken in their area. A presenter at the radio station and a Health Official presents each program. The stations have to compile a report on each program that they broadcast and so far the response has been positive coming from the various communities. Where necessary the Department of Health try to get a Health Professional in for programs that requires expert advise. We know that these programs are making a difference in people’s lives, community radio stations are being used because in some rural areas community radio stations are the only form of information and communication. We trust that the next 5 months will be just as successful in educating people about their health and that the Department of Health will continue to make a positive contribution to towards the program.
