Moyo ndi Mpamba includes a radio drama, which encourages listeners to interact with the show using SMS (text messaging) and social media, as well as music, to communicate health messages.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Moyo ndi Mpamba's approach is to link good health to a person’s ability to advocate on his/her behalf and make positive health choices. "The comprehensive platform will use communication interventions across Malawi’s priority health areas, including maternal, newborn and child health, family planning, nutrition, malaria, HIV and AIDS and water, sanitation and hygiene." Health messages are being designed and packaged under a healthy lifestyle theme, using examples of families doing simple things to stay healthy and happy, such as sleeping under mosquito nets every night, going for antenatal care, eating nutritious foods, using modern contraceptives, and drinking safe water. <br /><br /> </p> <p>The Moyo ndi Mpamba radio drama uses entertainment education and showcases role models that the audience can identify with and learn from. The 30-minute radio drama episodes include storylines that allow audiences to "hear about the twists and turns of community life as the characters learn to cope with challenges that reflect the real-life problems of people in Malawi." For example, characters include couple Ritchie and Nasilina, who receive counselling from Ritchie’s aunt about open communication around family planning. Another character is Mrs. Gama, who, because of a lack of open discussion with her husband, uses family planning methods in secret. <br /><br /></p> <p>Listeners are encouraged to respond to the drama and engage with the campaign via SMS or the <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.facebook.com/moyondimpamba" target="_blank">Moyo ndi Mpamba facebook page</a>. Social media is used to reinforce healthy behaviours and provide feedback for further programming. A subsequent feedback programme highlighting the audience's reaction is then aired. According to the producers, SMS and social media were chosen because letters take long to arrive, and phone calls are more expensive than SMS.<br /><br /></p> <p>The campaign also uses music to promote health messages, including a campaign theme song performed by celebrity musicians. In addition, the Moyo ndi Mphamba Music4Life Festival challenged artists to compete with self composed music featuring health-centred messages. Regional competitions were hosted for three weeks leading up to a grand finale. The health compositions by the artists were then compiled into an album, which was made available to the public.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Health, Maternal and child health, Family planning, Nutrition, Malaria, HIV and AIDS, and Water, sanitation and hygiene</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to the producers, the radio drama "has proved very successful with many people claiming to have made personal changes in their lives as a result of the show.

The radio drama is designed to raise awareness and dialogue around sexual offences, as well as highlight the services and expertise available from the TCCs. Provided free to community radio stations, Thuthuzeleka (meaning be comforted in isiXhosa) was produced by CMFD (Community Media for Development) Productions for Sonke Gender Justice.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Thuthuzeleka drama is a crime/thriller story , which follows detective Busi Ncube as she goes undercover at a secondary school to find a serial rapist. She works alongside Ma Elise, site coordinator for the local Thuthuzela Care Centre, as she follows clues to find the rapist, while trying to help support her new friend Thandi through the process of reporting, medical examination, and giving a statement following a sexual assault. Thandi’s brother Thabo struggles with his own problems, just when his sister needs him most. <br /><br /></p> <p>Each 15-minute episode includes practical information, such as what steps to take following a sexual assault, while also challenging negative attitudes and misconceptions that surround sexual violence. "In a society where rape is very prevalent, the story tells each rape survivor that they are not alone – help, care and support is available. Every woman – and man who experiences rape – should report it. Furthermore, it calls on South Africans to take a stand against rape."<br /><br /></p> <p>The stories and characters of Thuthuzeleka were developed after a formative research process that outlined key information to convey, attitudes to challenge, and behaviours to encourage. The characters were created so that their experiences demonstrate that every person can stand up against violence, and help support survivors in their healing process. As part of the story development, the detailed story outlines with scene by scene summaries were reviewed by partners and experts, including representatives from radio and Thuthuzela Care Centres who provided insights and suggested changes to ensure relevance and to maximise the impact of the message. <br /><br /></p> <p>The radio drama is available in English, isiZulu, SeSotho, and Tshivenda. It is being distributed to community radio stations in close proximity to Thuthuzela Care Centres, along with a promotional trailer, original theme music, and a printed discussion guide which is intended for radio presenters, discussion facilitators, teachers in schools, community groups, and anyone using the drama to encourage dialogue. The discussion guide includes the following:</p> <ul type="square"> <li>episode summaries;</li> <li>discussion questions for facilitators, teachers, and drama facilitators;</li> <li>ideas for radio shows – topics for more in-depth reporting and discussions;</li> <li>background information about sexual violence; and</li> <li>contacts for more information.</li> </ul> <p><a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.genderjustice.org.za/communications-and-strategic-information/community-radio-stations/thuthuzeleka-radio-drama-series/" target="_blank">Click here </a>to listen to episodes of the drama.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sexually violence, HIV/AIDS, Gender based violence</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to Sonke Gender Justice, "finding the right statistics on rape is difficult. Available statistics are inconsistent and lack context. Women’s groups in South Africa estimate that a woman is raped every 26 seconds, while the South African Police Service estimates that a woman is raped every 36 seconds. However, rape in South Africa is a real problem that needs to be tackled seriously."<br /> <br /></p> <p>The Thuthuzeleka drama is part of Sonke’s ongoing community radio project (a component of a joint 5-year project implemented by Sonke, Soul City Institute for Health and Development Communication, the Medical Research Council, the Foundation for Professional Development, and the National Prosecuting Authority Sexual Offences and Community Affairs Unit), which is working with radio stations near Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) throughout the country.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/africa/files/imagecache/thumbnail/tcccoversonke.jpg" alt="" title="Thuthuzeleka Radio Drama Series" width="76" height="100" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-partner-text"> <div class="field-label">Partner Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sonke Gender Justice, CMFD (Community Media for Development) Productions, Soul City Institute for Health and Development Communication, Medical Research Council, Foundation for Professional Development, National Prosecuting Authority Sexual Offences and Community Affairs Unit, Thuthuzela Care Centre</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-contactinfo"> <div class="field-label">Contact Information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/node/270027">Deborah Walter - CMFD (Community Media for Development) Productions</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.genderjustice.org.za/communications-and-strategic-information/community-radio-stations/thuthuzeleka-radio-drama-series/ " target="_blank">Sonke Gender Justice website</a>, <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.genderjustice.org.za/news-item/sonke-launches-thuthuzeleka/" target="_blank">Sonke Gender Justice website</a>,and <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.cmfd.org/what-we-do/radio-drama/thuthuzela-care-centres-radio-drama" target="_blank">CMFD Productions website</a> on August 4 2015. </p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.comminit.com/africa/content/thuthuzeleka-radio-drama-series#comments Africa South Africa Southern Africa Experiences Radio Featured Community Radio - Africa Edutainment - Africa Africa Thu, 06 Aug 2015 18:23:50 +0000 Deanna.Brotherston 9356327 at http://www.comminit.com African Media Leaders Forum (Nov 11-13 2015) http://www.comminit.com/africa/event/african-media-leaders-forum-nov-11-13-2015 <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-label">Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-start">Nov 11 2015</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">Nov 13 2015</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.comminit.com/africa/files/imagecache/thumbnail/amlf2015.jpg" alt="" title="African Media Leaders Forum (Nov 11-13 2015)" width="100" height="87" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Location:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Johannesburg, South Africa</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The African Media Leaders Forum (AMLF) 2015 is being hosted under the theme 'Shaping Development Conversations in Africa: The Role of Media in the Digital Environment.'
