The new multimedia database will tentatively be composed of five types of media products, including pictures (photos, comics, etc.), audios (podcasts, songs, etc.), videos (documentaries, events recordings, cartons, etc.), and be a living database with up-to-date media releases.

As a first step a podcast channel has already been created to collect WASH-related podcast series from SuSanA partners and various external producers.
