Community Dry Movie Screenings & Drama

Sep 8, 2020

DOVENET Team with support from USAID/EngenderHealth carried out a fusion of education and entertainment (movie screening)/drama to create social change in the area of Obstetric Fistula, ANC, Prolonged and Obstructed labor(P/OL),Family Planning, Girl Child Education, Early Marriage and other general Maternal Health issues. The movie “DRY” was shown including community organized health dramas, this built audience participation, owing to the use of colloquial and identifiable dialect which resulted in establishing an instantaneous and direct rapport with the communities. This was a viable tool to impart didactic messages in an entertaining manner to create social change in the area of Obstetric Fistula, ANC, Prolonged and Obstructed labor(P/OL),Family Planning, Girl Child Education, Early Marriage and other general MH issues.

This community activity was carried out at Night in all the LGAs of project implementation of Ebonyi State, including Benue and Enugu State. At the end of these innovative channels/activities, this approach created resonance among community members; there was dialogue, action and reflection, social learning, self and community efficacy, peer engagement to ensure feedback.
