By using community radios, these two partners in Bangladesh and Nepal cooperate on ways to communicate about public health, both on a general, educational basis and as a way to inform the community on urgent health concerns. They empower their communities by utilizing a community learning programme (CLP). This programme is built on the premises of co-learning where community participation is vital. The participants are a mix of stakeholder institutions consisting of health communication groups, a community-based health organisation, producers from community radio stations and training agencies working on health and education.
