Brothers for Life, in partnership with SABC Education, are launching a weekly half hour talk show on all local language radio stations of the SABC. The show, “Brothers are talking”, aims to stimulate dialogue and get men involved in preventing new HIV infections, stopping gender-based violence, and promoting responsible fatherhood. 

The first show, devoted to medical male circumcision will be broadcast on air on all  SABC participating stations during the first week of June, in 11 different languages.  The series will include a celebration of fathers in honour of Father’s Day, discussions on how men who express themselves violently can change their behaviour, and advice on TB prevention. 

Brenda Goldblatt, Director for Strategic Communications at Centre for Communications Impact, which promotes Brothers for Life, is excited about yet another fruitful partnership with SABC Education building on the successes of the previous radio talk show series that have sought to engage the public on the key issues being addressed.
