Interactive theatre joins the fights against diabetes in Fiji

Updated 6 December 2013, 9:45 AEST

A community theatre project funded by the International Diabetes Federation is endeavouring to promote diabetes education and prevention in Fiji.

It is hoped the new interactive approach will have a better reach than Health Ministry's diabetes brochures and posters which people do not read.

The project is the outcome of research on the impact of Non Communicable Diseases carried out by Dr Phillip Szmedra, professor of Economics at Georgia Southwestern State University.

Presenter:Isabelle Genoux

Speaker:Dr Phillip Szmedra, Professor of Economics, Georgia Southwestern State University
