Radio

The Side-by-Side radio show is a 48-episode serialised drama telling the story of Joyce, a 23-year-old single mom, living in a South African township with her baby daughter, her mother, and her nephew. Through the friendships and supportive relationships she builds with the people around her, Joyce eventually finds her strength and her voice as a mother, as a daughter, and as a woman.

Each episode of the Side-by-Side show centres on an educational message of the campaign. It is followed by a 7-minute live question and answer discussion between the radio host and an expert guest, to elaborate on the educational message and to take questions from listeners.

Spread the word, and encourage caregivers to tune in.
