    This week’s featured scripts are a good example of how drama can convey important messages in an entertaining way. In this two-part series on maternal health, we see how traditional and non-traditional beliefs play out as newly-married couple Azuma and Tontie make their home and prepare for the birth of their first child. Through characters who are easy to relate to, the drama conveys vital messages about maternal healthcare during pregnancy, labour, and following the birth.

    These scripts are a final preview of DCFRN’s latest script package, which was mailed to partners on March 31 and will be posted online later this month. If you missed the previews of scripts on rainwater collection and financial management on the farm, you may link to them here:

    -“Financial Management for Smallholder Farmers” (Package 83, Script 10)
