Development Media International

Development Media International (DMI) delivers media campaigns aimed at
changing behaviours, promoting health and saving lives. We are the first
organisation to scientifically demonstrate that mass media can increase life-
saving behaviours.

In 2018 DMI published the results of its 5-year, £7m randomised controlled
trial in West Africa which showed that 56% more children were taken for
treatment for malaria, 73% more for diarrhoea and 39% more for pneumonia
following exposure to our campaign. Modelling indicates that over 3000 lives
were saved during the campaign and that our approach is one of the most cost-
effective ways of saving children’s lives. We work across a range of health
issues, including child survival, reproductive health, nutrition, hygiene, and
early childhood development.

Working as part of a small country team, the Campaigns Manager will play a
critical role in the development and delivery of DMI’s behaviour change
campaigns in Zambia. The post holder would work closely with the Senior
