AFRICAN HEALTH DIALOGUES

African Health Dialogues is a weekly health care discussion on AV radio about awareness, progress and gaps, costs and accessibility of medical /pharmaceutical products and services within the African and African Diaspora communities Worldwide. 

The objective of the program is to provide health literacy, advocacy, and inspire consensus and leadership roles in improving public health care status in underserved communities. The discussion accomodates a wide range of organizations and experts' views and advice on diverse scientific and socio-economic aspect of health and welfare issues.

A key challenge facing health professionals is to mobilize the power of mass communication to empower individuals to adopt healthy behaviors, to direct policy makers’ attention to important health issues, and to frame those issues for public debate and resolution. AHD was developed to  address this challenge.  

We have also decided to launch a new Community Health Communication program where all our programs are directly tied to a community.  This will help us collect and map necessary demographic data which can help determine how heathy a community is, as well as open new opportunities for marketable health care services. We are determined  to explore the field of mass communication and public health by researching and analyzing the contributions of mass communication to behavior change and policy, by preparing future health leaders to utilize our unique communication strategies, and by strengthening communication between journalists and health professionals, and most importantly, making health information intelligible to the public.

Announcements

The nation’s overdose epidemic has entered a devastating new phase. Drugs laced with fentanyl and even more poisonous synthetics have flooded the streets, as the crisis spreads well beyond the rural, largely white communities that initially drew attention. The death rate is escalating twice as fast among Black people than among white people. This webinar will give journalists deep insights, fresh story ideas and practical tips for covering an epidemic that killed more than 107,000 people in the U.S. last year.
