Rwanda: PMC/UNFPA to Launch Drama Series


The Country Representatives of Population Media Centre- Rwanda (PMC-Rwanda) will today launch a radio serial drama programme, 'Umurage Urukwiye'. The U.S- based organisation coordinated under UNFPA -Rwanda uses the media to 'sustain the earth'.

According to the administrative assistant for PMC Rwanda, Population Media Center (PMC-Rwanda) works in collaboration with UNFPA in developing a radio serial drama using entertainment education methodologies to effectively address issues related to family planning. "We also deal with reproductive health and reproductive rights, combating HIV/ Aids, gender equity and women empowerment," he said. The ultimate objective is to influence behaviour in the society of Rwanda.

The United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA] is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy meaningful life. They also work to ensure universal access to reproductive health, including family planning and sexual behaviour.
