Unlike Media Impact’s traditional Entertainment-Education programs, Vibra Chiaps consists of talk shows in radio and television which provides an open platform for participants (viewers and listeners) to call in.
Vibra Chiapas consists of radio and television magazines and events developed by our partners in Chiapas. The magazines and events are designed with and for youth and promote a wide variety of issues. Main highlighted topics include sexual and reproductive health, sexual and reproductive rights, HIV and AIDS, gender equality, tolerance, and diversity. Vibra Chiapas brings together local musicians, athletes and artists as well as thematic experts that discuss main issues with the audience. Vibra Chiapas produced 80 radio programs and 18 TV shows. Additionally, events draw attention to most pressing community issues and the program produced 19 concerts or festivals. The festivals were a great location to promote and communicate health related issues.
As part of its objective to promote sexual and reproductive health among adolescents in Chiapas, local service providers promoted their services and products among the festivals’ participants. 62,000 people attended the events, where 2,094 HIV tests were administered and 38,750 male condoms and 8,945 female condoms were distributed.
The My Community-My Water program will produce a 90-episode radiodrama "Sed de Ti." This project holds as objectives: positive behavior change in communities when it comes to protecting water sources, water and sanitation methods, and responsible use of potable water. "Sed De Ti" is broadcast to the marginal rural and urban populations of four primary regions, one for each distinct Peruvian microclimate (coast, desert, jungle, highlands).
