This paper from the Health Education Journal describes an evaluation of the Actors & Doctors: Staging Public Health Matters project. The authors assessed the feasibility, acceptability and impact of the Actor–Doctor project, which was an intervention involving theatre professionals and medical specialists to jointly deliver street theatre based public health education.

This article provides useful information where limited evidence exists on the effectiveness of using an entertainment-education methodology to address multiple public health issues and of using participatory street theatre to improve public understanding related to public health in India.
