Radio allows for conversations on all aspects of health, from physical to mental, from day to day illnesses to life-threatening diseases to tackling stigma around sexual health and mental disease.

Health has been at the centre of Gurgaon Ki Awaaz’s broadcast since inception.

Our first partners in the area health were St Stephen’s Hospital rural outreach program in village Dhankot. Collaborating right from set-up in 2009, we trained a health worker in radio production and broadcasting, and produced a series of programs on health, especially maternal and child health.

Over nearly 11 years of broadcasting we have tackled various health issues, but the most satisfying have been the ones where the anonymity of radio has encouraged listeners to join the conversation, or where we have got tangible feedback of behaviour change.

Over the past decade of broadcasting, we have collaborated with number of organisation, individuals and governement agencies to produce programs on health. These include:

The Mental Health Campaign

We use radio to address the silence and stigma surrounding mental health issues. Given the stigma to speak about mental health, and to reach out to professionals for help, the privacy and anonymity of radio allows our listeners to call in and talk to psychologists in our studio during live phone-in programs every week.
