Malaria Challenge: Managing Malaria

Produced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, these materials help students to understand how malaria is tackled in an area where it is endemic. In this activity students are given a scenario where they are allocated the role of malaria programme managers for a community in a malaria area.

In groups, students assess the situation facing the community and propose a strategy that will work towards eliminating malaria from the area. The groups must present their proposal to the rest of the class and summarise their reasons for suggesting this strategy.

The activity requires students to disseminate a lot of information and apply it to a real life situation. It is a challenging activity which requires team work and is recommended for post-16 students or the most able 14-16 year old students.
