ABSTRACT

Radio is portable, accessible without electricity, relatively economical and almost universally available. Hence, this study assessed the role of radio in the management of environmental health issues in the Dutse local government area of Jigawa State. Information diffusion Theory, Agenda-setting theory and Development media theory served as theoretical Frameworks. The study adopted a survey research method, while a questionnaire was used as an instrument. The findings showed that radio enabled listeners to be adequately informed about health issues. And this invariably improved their health consciousness. It was concluded that more needs to be done in order to improve access of the residents of Dutse local government to radio to gain more information on environmental health. The study, therefore, recommended among others that more studies on the use of radio in creating awareness on environmental health issues should be published. This indicates a need for more and deeper study in such areas which will help inform and educate the public and set an agenda for public debate about health topics.
