Ten radio stations in Ghana have been selected to educate people in the country about hiv/aids. The Ghana Aids Commission is funding the project, being implemented by the Centre for Development Communication (cedcom), a development communication consortium. Gariba Ibrahim, cedcom's team leader, said the project would involve the broadcasting of a soap opera, Dudu, in six local dialects, Twi, Ewe, Dagbani, Gruni, Dagaari and Ga-Dangbe.
He said the drama was developed based on a research cedcom and the 10 partner radio stations undertook to identify the high-risk behaviour of their audience. Ibrahim said that since the project was the first of its kind in the country, it would be on pilot basis with limited number of episodes.
