“Even in the evening when they have dinner, there are mosquitos around they bite my baby and I don’t really know what to do to protect my child.

Aziza is one of thousands of Tanzanians that would benefit from more knowledge and training on the prevention of Malaria. The Tanzania Communication and Development Center is a project that has received funding to combat malaria thanks to a partnership between Comic Relief and GSK. It is on the frontline of the fight against malaria in Tanzania and uses a multi-pronged approach - training volunteers to go into schools and communities to educate students and residents and sending mobile video units into communities to spread messages about treatment and prevention.
