Content

As a way of ensuring that people adopt good health practices to prevent and treat illness and save money, AFFORD, a USAID-funded health marketing initiative launched a "good life game show" on April 4 at Ndere Centre.

The show, that started showing on UBC starting April 16, is aimed at educating Ugandans on health, but in an entertaining manner. It particularly targets couples, people living with HIV/Aids, care takers of children under five years and pregnant women.

Dr Godfrey Magumba, the managing director of AFFORD, says the "Good life game show" is meant to give them a chance to understand the varied health practices like family planning, sleeping under treated mosquito nets and HIV/Aids.
