Brief: FACT Project’s Radio Drama

The Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) and Population Media Center (PMC) collaborated under the USAID-funded FACT Project to create Impano n’Impamba, an entertaining serial radio drama that dispelled myths about fertility and family planning in Rwanda.

After the drama concluded, a community-level household survey was conducted with a nationally representative sample of women and men of reproductive age to assess differences in sexual and reproductive health knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors between Impano n’Impamba listeners and non-listeners. Results indicated that listeners had higher fertility awareness than non-listeners. No differences were found in family planning use or intent to use a method in the future.  However, listeners were more likely to experience secondary outcomes related to family planning use.
