It appears that the project development approach may also be useful for planning and implementing other forms of nutrition and health education, including longer radio programmes, posters, pamphlets, etc. Creative talent and management support are available in most countries, although the impetus for developing the programmes and initial technical assistance may have to come from outside.</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="/global/content/mike-favin-manoff-group">Mike Favin - The Manoff Group</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://manoffgroup.com/documents/RadioEducationProjectFinalReport.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Radio Advertising Techniques and Nutrition Education: A Summary of a Field Experiment in the Philippines and Nicaragua Final Report [PDF]</a>, Manoff International, December 1977, referenced in a posting from Mike Favin to the Health Communication Network within The Communication Initiative Network, July 30 2014. <em>Image credit:</em> World Vision Philippines</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/global/content/impact-data-radio-advertising-techniques-and-nutrition-education" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/impact-data-radio-advertising-techniques-and-nutrition-education#comments Nicaragua Philippines Excerpted Project Impact Data Evaluations Featured Impact Evaluation Data MDG 1.
