Trac FM involves people in monitoring service delivery in their community through radio polls. Responses to the polls are instantly visualized in the radio studio so talk-show hosts can discuss the data with their guests and give feedback to listeners on what is happening on the ground.
This instant feedback loop creates transparency, awareness and promotes accountability and informed debate. The Trac FM method is the first of its kind and uses radio talk-shows, SMS and internet in a configuration which is custom made for the use in rural Uganda.
The platform has been used in radio broadcasts since May 2011 and is proving to be a very popular way for radio listeners to participate in public debate! We are sharing our platform with interested radio stations in the developing world and give training advice on how to set up effective monitoring and advocacy campaigns.
