Health and nutrition education programmes tend to engage women, because of their perceived traditional roles as primary care givers. Yet, 500 million women worldwide are illiterate. There is a strong need for a robust and scalable approach which does not rely on the written word to provide knowledge to marginalized populations. Audiopedia is tackling this challenge.
Audiopedia is a global online project combining relevant and localized SBCC audio contents with easily usable hard- and software. The web site Audiopedia.io was designed to provide access to open knowledge to both CBOs/NGOs and individuals. CBOs/NGOs can benefit by using it as part of their SBCC strategy, as it enables them to search, download, embed and share audio files in several languages.
