April 19, 2011
The Times of Zambia/allAfrica.com describes how a local NGO in Zambia known as Corridors of Hope (CoH) III is working to educate the population about the risks of HIV/AIDS and methods to prevent its transmission through community radio programs. In addition to developing a better awareness about the factors that contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS, the article describes how the radio programs have helped to change listeners' views on education and gender-based violence. CoH, a five-year project, is supported by PEPFAR, according to the news service (Zimba, 4/18).
