The Free From Malaria Comic
Malaria is a free comic
available for download and printing. The comic teaches
children how Malaria is spread by mosquitoes and how to
recognise its symptoms. It enforces the importance of
getting early treatment and using insecticide treated
The narrative is based on warm illustrations (by Joanna
Scott) and helps children visualize how the disease
spreads within the body.

The comic is available to
download in Swahili,
French, English and Spanish in both PDF and JPG image format
