The Maternal Health Channel Television and Radio Series (MHC) is conceptualized as an engaging, state of the art series that informs, educates and stimulates interest in maternal health issues. One of its key objectives is to encourage further progress towards improved maternal health care in Ghana, whilst seeking urgent solutions to the high incidence of maternal deaths and disabilities. The project strives to achieve this by encouraging the widest possible public policy dialogue and building positive synergies for change within the health sector and the country at large. The project is unique. It utilizes a multiplicity of media including television and radio, the electronic, print and social media and community activations to raise awareness about maternal health issues. As a civil society initiative, it seeks to expand the maternal health debate by bringing to national and international attention, stories and issues that empower women and give voice to poor, marginalized communities. Television is still hugely popular in Ghana and gives powerful resonance to the awareness campaign. Many families in both urban and rural Ghana still gather around the television box for most of the evening. It is said that a picture tells a thousand words. Moving images, sound and engaging dialogue do much more. Consequently, the Maternal Health Channel Television Series has become an engaging medium to mobilize and unify consensus around such a critical health issue. Radio expands the impact by extending the reach to more communities across the country.
