Grants to this Grantee
for radio PSAs and other rapid media response to Ebola outbreak in western Uganda  
The Uganda Radio Network (URN) produces content and programming for local radio stations in Uganda, reaching over 80 percent of the population. Radio is the social media for a majority of Ugandans, especially those in remote locations of the country. URN creates content and programming for these radio stations, including creating opportunities for ordinary Ugandans to hear from and engage their local and national leaders as well as service providers in conversations about service delivery challenges. This grant will enable URN to mount a public information and awareness campaign on radio stations about the Ebola virus in boundary districts. URN will draw from previous campaigns in Uganda to reinforce awareness of the dangers of the Ebola virus; encourage well established sanitation and social practices that curtail the spread of the disease; and advance the use of religious, cultural, and local administration leaders to reinvigorate surveillance mechanisms.
