SC Johnson’s Anti-Malaria Information, Education & Communication (IEC) program, developed in conjunction with GBC, is a powerful learning tool to help NGOs, governments, businesses and community health groups raise awareness about the disease and reduce the rate of new infections among people living and working in the hardest-hit regions of the world.
Developed in a “train the trainer” format, the IEC provides information to educate employees, customers and the broader community on the risks of malaria. It also provides life-saving information on effective prevention measures, as well as the latest on anti-malaria treatment.
Malaria educators – who could be community health workers or company human resources employees – play a crucial role in educating communities on the signs and symptoms of malaria, advising them on preventive measures that can be taken and to motivate communities to take malaria control measures. This guide will help them to do that more effectively.
The materials available here include:
- The Malaria Educator Manual: a comprehensive guide with information on malaria facts, treatment and prevention; a guide to educating communities; and links to other malaria education tools
- Flipchart “prompts”: serving as a visual guide for trainers discussing the program materials
- Additional Large Visuals: other large images that can also be used to discuss the program materials
The trainer materials are available in English, French, Portuguese and Kiswahili.
