Popular films and health messages reach remote communities in western Africa, brought by the Cinéma Numérique Ambulant (CNA, French for 'Mobile Digital Cinema').

With support from UNICEF and other NGOs, five mobile cinema projection vans travel to villages across Niger, Benin and Mali. Feature films are preceded by shorts on such topics as malaria prevention, HIV/AIDS and water sanitation. Since its inception in 2001, the CNA has reached around 1.5 million people.
