Development Media International (DMI) runs television, radio, and mobile campaigns in developing countries to change health-related behaviours and save lives. DMI is the first organisation to have demonstrated that mass media campaigns implemented according to DMI’s methodology can change health-related behaviours and save lives.
Development Media International designs and delivers mass media campaigns on radio and TV to promote improved health practices.
The campaigns are designed to achieve the greatest impact by broadcasting frequently on popular stations, airing in local languages, and using entertaining and creative storytelling to change behaviour.
DMI uses randomized, controlled trials to generate evidence of impact based on robust evaluations and to scale up its most effective campaigns to reach millions of people.
