Building capacity to use arts-based methods for non-communicable disease prevention in Malawi and Tanzania

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a growing public health issue in Malawi and Tanzania. Recently with residents in Malawi, we explored the possibilities of a new community arts-based methodology to develop the local understandings of NCDs essential for effective intervention.

Based on the partnerships and pilots of this study, this workshop will solidify and share new arts-based methods for public health research.
