FROM GUATEMALA TO MEXICO: PMC RADIO SHOW LAUNCHES IN JUNE

 

After the original broadcast of Toma Mi Mano ("Take My Hand") in Guatemala, members of Radio Huayacocotla requested to air the show in Mexico. The opportunity to rebroadcast the 156-episode radio show with new accompanying content broadens the already existing reach of  Toma Mi Mano.

“Our methodology works across people, borders, and media markets,” says PMC's Vice President of International Programs Kriss Barker. “In the Latin American media market, it’s actually quite normal to rebroadcast content across different countries. This is an exciting opportunity and challenge for us because it allows us to get more impact out of content already created, but we also had to find local partners and adjust the overall campaign for the new broadcast region.”

MAYAN MIDWIVES TAKE TO THE RADIO

 

The Association of Midwives of the Mam Area (ACAM) wanted to communicate with patients beyond their health clinics and decided to launch their own educational radio show. The focus of the show would mirror their medical expertise on prenatal and postpartum services, family planning education and services, nutrition education, and more.

While extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, the midwives had anxieties about the show’s production. To ease their fears and improve the radio program, Maya Midwifery International, one of ACAM’s partner organizations, contacted Population Media Center for in-person training.
