Media Monitoring for Tobacco Control

The Media Monitoring aims to regularly scan, compile and analyze the coverage of tobacco control issues in the Bangladesh media that include print, electronic and online.

The media monitoring covers almost all major (around 74) mass media in Bangladesh that includes all regularly published dailies (both in Bangla and English) from Dhaka and the major dailies published from the Divisional cities outside Dhaka; all TV channels and radio stations; the major web-based news portals; and the major news agencies.

All types of media coverage (e.g. news, articles, editorials/post-editorials, features, and photo-features) is being scanned daily and compiled on a weekly basis with summary of each of the media pieces. A monthly analysis of the all the media coverage is being undertaken to illustrate the trends of media coverage on tobacco control issues. PROGGA is doing the media monitoring assignment as part of contractual agreement with Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids (CTFK) which started from June 2011.
