Falk, Diane S.; Pettet, Kristen; Mpagi, Charles
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n3 p161-166 Mar 2016
In this paper, children attending a U.S.-sponsored private primary school serving orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda were interviewed in focus groups about their participation in a peer-to-peer health education program in which they used music, dance, poetry, art, and drama to convey health information. The children reported enhanced knowledge and changes in health behavior among themselves and their peers.
