Unicef India has hosted the second edition of the Radio4Child awards to recognise creative and innovative programming on the issues of routine immunisation and ending violence against women and children.
Unicef, AIR and AROI have been conducting capacity-building workshops for private FM channels as well as AIR journalists since 2014 to help them integrate meaningful, appealing radio jingles/talk shows on the critical messages of child health, routine immunisation and ending violence.
The Radio4child Award was envisaged to recognise the contribution of radio journalists in creative dissemination of health messages for children. The first edition was held in 2015.
In addition to immunisation, another focus area this year was on the ending violence campaign focusing on the digital safety of children, Unicef said.
