Sensitizing Panchayats on Health Issues through Television: Experiences of A Pilot Project
AbstractA pilot project was undertaken in six districts of Karnataka by ISEC to train and sensitize the Gram Panchayat members on various health issues, using television as a medium. With the help of Voluntary Organizations, Panchayat members were brought to television sets in their villages for group viewing and discussions. The post-project evaluation indicates that this training methodology was acceptable and effective, resulting in a significant increase in the health awareness of members and their readiness to undertake health promotion activities.
