PMC-Uganda

underline

Population Media Center has worked in Uganda since 2018 as a social behavior change communication partner. Most notably the team supported the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development (FCDO) Reducing High Fertility Rates and Improving Sexual Reproductive Health Outcomes in Uganda (RISE) project. As part of the project, PMC-Uganda broadcast two long-running radio shows designed to entertain and change attitudes and behaviors.

Our Projects

Akakunizo

Developed as part of the FCDO Reducing High Fertility Rates and Improving Sexual Reproductive Health Outcomes in Uganda (RISE) project, Akakunizo (“Jigsaw Puzzle”) aimed to increase the use of modrern family planning methods across six regions of Uganda. The Luganda langugage radio show promoted PMC’s partner organization MSI Choices and its local health resources and clinics.

Sotakai

Sotakai (“Footsteps”) was developed as part of the FCDO Reducing High Fertility Rates and Improving Sexual Reproductive Health Outcomes in Uganda (RISE) project. This English language show aired from Northeastern to Central-western Uganda and addressed family planning, sexual and gender-based violence, and maternal and child health and nutrition.

Dunga

The International Rescue Committee cast PMC to create play-based, social-emotional learning content for refugee children as part of its Play Well Africa project. Dunga, a 20-episode audio series, prioritizes play-based learning techniques to support the LEGO Foundation’s belief that play supports children’s ability to cope with adversity. The modular content for at-home and remote students is also delivered via radio and other digital platforms where internet access is limited, like refugee settlements and crisis centers.
