Using the reach and privacy of participatory radio to talk about sexual and reproductive health issues, and break the silence and stigma
In 2013, under a partnership with Commonwealth Of Learning, Gurgaon Ki Awaaz launched a health series built as a Community Learning Program. The result, Chahat Chowk (Crossroads of Desire), is a weekly program focused on the sexual and reproductive health of couples. Produced along with stakeholders such as Civil Hospital, Gurgaon, St. Stephens Hospital, Gurgaon, community men and women, and partner NGOs, the program features a doctor in the studio to answer questions from listeners in a Live program format.
Doctors from Civil Hospital, Paras Hospital, independent doctors, nutritionists, psychologists and ANMs regularly come into the studio to answer questions directly from listeners over one-hour long programs.
The Chahat Chowk series has been supported by donor agencies such as Commonwealth Of Learning and corporates such as DSM under their CSR activity. If you wish to support our sexual and reproductive health campaign please contact us.
