Malaria Tutorial — i on NIH — episode #0011, segment 3
For a while, NLM has been interested in consumers — end users — how they get their information. If they use it, do they use it to really make behavior change and have better health as a result? So the thought was, since we do a lot of outreach work in Africa, why don't we make a tutorial that would work there? But rather they make something here for Africa, the idea was to make something in Africa collaborating with folks there. So, we worked with the medical school at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, and also Ugandan artists who were in Kampala, and made a version of a Medline Plus tutorial about malaria, which is quite different from the Medline Plus malaria tutorial that you see on the web site that's geared for American audiences going abroad, about how not to catch malaria and how to treat it.
