A large part of helping the fight against malaria is in educating people about causes, treatments and malaria prevention methods.
Malaria is one of the most serious health threats facing the world today. Malaria takes the lives of more than one million people, mostly children five years old and younger, per year and affecting between two and three billion people worldwide.
A Tennessee company has introduced a unique educations tool called MalariaCube. The MalariaCube is a simple and engaging tool that educates viewers on causes, treatment and prevention of malaria. Using pictures to eliminate the language barrier, MalariaCube unfolds to reveal important facts that help identify how to prevent malaria.
The MalariaCube “is a unique and creative approach for educating people about malaria prevention and control,” Dr. K.F. Fischer, MD, MPH, said. “Since there are no words on the Cube, the message can be shared in any language using the information on the package insert. I recommend it.”
Elizabeth Styffe, RN PHN MN and director of Global Orphan Care Initiatives for Saddleback Church and The PEACE Plan, said, “MalariaCube is a simple yet effective resource anyone can use to teach others about malaria.”
