Kenya: Creating Sickle Cell Awareness Through Folk Media

Sickle cell anaemia is a childhood illness with a high mortality rate,higher than HIV, yet its not on the national health plus media radar. We hope to use Participatory Education Theater (PET) to conduct civic education on the disease. This entertainment-education model is effective in lobbying and mobilization. The plays will be recorded & made into a short documentary that will be uploaded on the internet. Copies will be given to the community.
