Check out Siem Reap's Comedy for Health team performing a show encouraging breastfeeding.

Comedy for Health in Siem Reap: Breastfeeding from RACHA Cambodia on Vimeo.

A longer clip from a performance by Siem Reap's Comedy for Health team. The performance promotes breastfeeding through comedic interactions and storylines. The performance in its entirety runs about two hours, and demonstrates correct methods of breastfeeding (immediately after delivery, encouraging only breast milk for the first six months of the infant's life, and introducing complementary foods after six months), while making jokes about all of the incorrect ways to breastfeed. The show also touches on a common traditional Cambodian belief in spirits; encouraging parents and families to seek medical services instead of those of spiritual healers when they have symptoms of sickness.
