Comedy for Health (CFH) is a program aimed at healthy behavior change through educational theater entertainment. CFH is not a typical health promotion campaign. Comprised of volunteer actors, CFH tackles a variety of important health concerns and educates communities on how to address them. CFH integrates community health concerns, such as water and sanitation/hygiene, nutrition, and maternal and newborn health,, into shows to provide broad-based health messaging. Through innovative communication approaches, actors use comedy as a tool to address sensitive issues and encourage public discussion to dispel common disbeliefs. In a society where open discussion about sensitive health topics, such as family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention, is culturally unacceptable, comedy is one accepted way of approaching these issues.
