Now a decade old, we continue to harness the power of the media to bring about positive changes on a range of issues, from human rights and gender equality to HIV and AIDS prevention.
In the past year we have reached an audience of more than 250 million people through local radio and TV broadcast partners, BBC channels, online, mobile phones and print.
The 2007-2008 annual review celebrates creativity and innovation in the work of the BBC World Service Trust.
Creativity is central to our work. As Radharani Mitra, Creative Director of our India office says: "the heart of our work is creativity and ideas. Creativity is part of our DNA".
This approach helped Radharani and her team to reach more than 100 million people in India through the hugely successful "Condom, Condom" multi-media HIV and AIDS awareness campaign.
