Reports the work of Art and Global Health Centre Africa (AGHCA) in partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP) to devise a programme of Theatre for Healthy Living to address issues of food insecurity. AGHCA worked with local drama groups in four districts in Malawi to create participatory plays on themes of diet, water, sanitation and gender, which toured surrounding communities. In 2017, sixteen drama groups presented 115 performances which reached an estimated 85,000 people. The report provides photographs of the work in communities and feedback from participants, illustrating impacts achieved.
