Despite significant multisectoral efforts, malaria remains a challenge in many endemic countries. This parasitic disease is the deadliest and most frequently encountered on the planet, mainly on the African continent. In 2017, 92% of malaria cases and 93% of malaria deaths occurred in Africa.
Children are the most vulnerable towards malaria – 70% of the victims are children under 5 years of age – but can also play an active role in the prevention campaigns. Informing and teaching them is essential to initiating a change in behaviour in their communities.
Since 2001, in partnership with National Malaria Control Programmes (NMCPs) in African countries, Sanofi has developed training and awareness tools specifically designed for children and focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and management of malaria.The key messages conveyed in the different tools are based on malaria strategic plans set up in the countries and the tools have been designed in collaboration with the relevant players (NMCP, NGOs, teachers, children…).
Since 2018, thanks to new technologies implementation, Sanofi developped new educational tools designed to meet a range of different needs, and adapted to different audiences. These digital solutions are accessible for free on YouTube platform. This approach allows to reach a broader population.
MOSKI KIT's educational value in the field have made it a reference tool among children. It has been successfully rolled-out in 15 sub-Saharan African countries and won first prize in the category of "most valuable patient inititiative or service" the Eyeforpharma Awards.
We must invest in raising public awareness and commitment, improving prevention to combat malaria. Beyond its value in educating children about the disease, MOSKI material show how we can protect ourselves. Its digital format is well-adapted to today’s society.
