We ran a nationwide radio campaign promoting treatment-seeking behaviours for child survival (targeting pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea).
We undertook formative research on early childhood development (ECD) and parenting behaviours with the aim of producing radio spots that can encourage parents to provide more simulation and learning opportunities to their children.
