Entertainment-education methods have been used for centuries to impart knowledge, traditions, and moral guidance. Today, researchers are discovering the power of entertainment-education strategies to affect the outcomes of socio-political and economic development programmes including health and education. Entertainment-education for Health Behaviour Change: Issues and Perspectives in Africa is a collection of essays from some of the leading scholars in entertainment-education, including writers from South Africa, Nigeria, and the United States. Chapters cover a wide range of application and strategies for entertainment-education, from mass media campaigns to participatory communication for behaviour change in health interventions including polio eradication and HIV/AIDS.
