A Report to the Rockefeller Foundation
“An evaluation of Nalamdana theatrical activities showed that a significant increase in HIV/AIDS-related knowledge occurred as a result of watching the drama… accurate knowledge and awareness of where to go for further services like testing and counseling are the essential steps to behavior change. The interactive street theatre performances facilitate this link.”

Excerpt:

An evaluation of Nalamdana theatrical activities showed that a significant increase in
HIV/AIDS-related knowledge occurred as a result of watching the drama. Before the play,
audiences had relatively high levels of accurate knowledge about HIV/AIDS, but lower
knowledge levels of common HIV/AIDS misconceptions. The drama reduced these
misconceptions and also increased the level of reported intentions to treat HIV-positive
individuals more kindly.
