Edutainment as a vehicle for malaria-related behavior change: Lessons learnt from Uganda
Many malaria awareness interventions in Uganda are designed to target women and children under five, often overlooking men and male youth. With men typically controlling their household’s financial resources and making decisions about expenditures, including on health, successfully reaching and engaging men with health campaigns is extremely important. The USAID Malaria Action Program for Districts identified large-scale football events of the 2018 FIFA World Cup to successfully engage men with edutainment activities aimed at improving their knowledge of malaria prevention, treatment and behavior change within households.
