As part of our efforts to promote public health and prevent infectious diseases, we took our awareness campaign to the airwaves.
Our DRASA Radio Half Hour is a 30-minute radio show that aired live on Inspiration 92.3 FM Lagos from February to March.
During the show, we discussed and engaged with listeners on critical topics focused on how they can identify and prevent the spread of infectious diseases in their homes, schools, workplaces, religious centers, and communities.
Over the course of five weeks, we reached over 77,000 listeners.
In our first three episodes, we focused on understanding infectious diseases, how they spread, and what to do when we fall sick. Other topics covered in the last two episodes included how to prevent the spread of germs in homes and communities, as well as the role of vaccines in saving us from preventable illnesses.
Our radio show was no ordinary broadcast.
During the course of each episode, we had active listeners and participants, eagerly dialing in to ask questions and share their experiences. But the excitement didn’t stop there– at the end of each show, we tested their knowledge on the topics discussed with quizzes, rewarding the sharpest minds with prizes.
