SurfAid’s work in remote areas of Indonesia prioritises providing health information in a way that is fun and easy to digest. One of the most successful ways SurfAid shares important health information is through short videos. Over the past year, SurfAid staff has worked alongside villages in Sumbawa to create four short videos. Community health volunteers, community members and leaders decided what health messages were important and how, in a fun and culturally appropriate way, these messages could be made into short videos.
The videos are shown in the community health post and during special events. They are used to start a discussion on the important health topics they cover.
