ONE and Malaria No More Launch 'Malaria Griots'
Date:12/15/2009

Interactive education program will train advocates to be leaders in the fight against malaria

Project developed with support from experts in online learning, the Masie Center and Blackboard Inc.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ONE and Malaria No More announced today they are accepting applications for the first-ever "Malaria Griots" program, a dynamic education course that will train and educate participants to become leaders in the fight against malaria.

"In the West African tradition, a Griot is a storyteller, a community spokesperson and an agent of cultural change," said ONE President and CEO David Lane. "We want to empower people to become Malaria Griots to help tell political leaders and the public the malaria story--that we can beat this disease once and for all."

"Malaria Griots will be on the front lines of the battle to end malaria, accessing the latest information direct from the field and the halls of government," said Malaria No More CEO Scott Case. "As policy experts armed with advanced advocacy skills, Griots will be empowered to mobilize their communities to help make malaria no more."

Selected participants in the Malaria Griot program will kick-off their experience with an exclusively designed online course. This intensive five-month course will include live discussions with leading malaria experts, access to cutting-edge articles and video, as well as the opportunity to participate in current malaria campaigns. Participants will witness stories of Africans fighting to overcome the disease and speak directly with advocates on the ground in Africa. Beyond being immersed in the latest information on malaria policy and global health legislation, Griots will also learn how to be effective communicators with the media and be advocates in their communities.

The project has been undertaken by Malaria No More and ONE, with fina
