Program Name: Burundi Agashi 1.0
Program Activities
Agashi! (“Hey, Look Again!”) was a radio serial drama broadcast across Burundi. Using Population Media Center (PMC) entertainment-education approach, the program addressed family planning, reproductive health and child health/nutrition.
Impact Statement
$6 treats a child for diarrhea.
Methodology
PMC collected data on a sample of the broadcast population after the program. To estimate the change attributable to the program, PMC compared regular listeners of the show to a similar group of non-listeners.
Data Source
A nationally representative cross-sectional survey of women and men of reproductive age was conducted right after Agashi stopped being broadcasted. Survey questions covered demographics, health knowledge, health behaviors and exposure to the show.
Attribution Method
