UNICEF's Communication Initiative for Young People in Nepal

An initiative combining education and information with entertainment has been conceived out of a Knowledge, Attitude, Practice and Skills Survey conducted in 2000, among 1,4000 Nepalese adolescents aged 12 to 18 years. The findings showed a compelling need to build up the young Nepalese' knowledge and confidence to tackle daily pressures, including those from peers and parents, and habits that put their health and survival at risk. UNICEF Nepal has created 3 interlinked ways to reach young people: edutainment through radio and television; communication materials; and interpersonal discussions. In an interview, Cai Cai, Life Skills and HIV/AIDS Consultant with UNICEF Nepal shares strategies and lessons from this popular programme.  For more information see the case study on Nepal.
