BROADCASTING: 'Child-to-Child' radio broadcasts HIV/AIDS prevention messages in Mozambique

?Child-to-Child? radio broadcasts HIV/AIDS prevention messages in Mozambique

By Sarah Crowe

MAPUTO, Mozambique, 11 April 2006 ? The microphones are tested, the tapes are rolling, the countdown begins and the ?ON AIR? sign flashes. It looks like just another normal programme going to air from the marble corridors of Radio Mozambique, in a beautifully preserved Portuguese colonial structure in downtown Maputo.

But there?s a twist. Those asking the questions, at the controls, pushing the buttons and directing the programme?s line-up are all children. Today the studio guests are UNICEF?s Deputy Executive Director, Rima Salah, and Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa, Per Engebak.
