Annie Anopheles Malaria Cartoons

The “Annie Anopheles” cartoon short illustrates the importance of welcoming indoor residual spray teams (IRS) into communities to help prevent and control malaria (Zambia).

The cartoon is part of an animated film series designed to change malaria related prevention and treatment behaviors. Each cartoon covers a different malaria related behavior: one on the importance of sleeping under long-lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs) to prevent malaria, one on intermittent presumptive treatment (IPT) for malaria in pregnancy, and one on indoor residual spraying (IRS).
