World Class Project presents...
 The Free From Malaria Comic

Free From 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 nets.

The narrative is based on warm illustrations (by Joanna Scott) and helps children visualize how the disease spreads within the body.

To read more about how and why we created the project, please follow the blog.

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