The Buzz And Bite Malaria Prevention Campaign Is In Use In 50 Countries
Date:1/5/2009

om malaria are young children and pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa. There is no vaccine against malaria; the best defence is prevention with the use of long-lasting insecticide treated bed nets.

The Buzz and Bite Malaria Prevention Campaign:

The Buzz and Bite Malaria Prevention Campaign is the creation of Canadian animation producer and director Firdaus Kharas, working with a team of skilled professionals. The series was launched in Ottawa and at the United Nations by Mr. Kharas in advance of the first World Malaria Day, April 25, 2008. The Buzz and Bite malaria prevention campaign consists of 30 animated Public Service Announcements (PSAs) or spots that provide to the viewer a variety of information about the transmission and prevention of malaria. In addition to the 30 spots created for malaria prevalent countries, two spots have been created to encourage non-malaria prevalent countries to buy long-lasting insecticide-treated bed-nets for malaria at-risk populations.

The PSAs are available to any television broadcaster, radio station, NGO, hospital, doctor, community group, university, school, educator or other user, anywhere in the world, free of charge. A comprehensive website, www.malariacampaign.ca, has been developed where copies of tapes and DVDs of The Buzz and Bite Campaign can be requested online. The Buzz and Bite malaria prevention campaign is currently available in 22 languages, from Afrikaans to Tagalog. In all, 662 PSAs have been already created. The campaign is strongly supported by Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu who has written an open letter which he calls "an impassioned plea" to use the material.
