Zero Malaria! Starts with Me In is an inclusive mass communication campaign that aims to launch a national movement in favor of malaria elimination in Senegal. Its activities are part of a larger strategy that aims at creating a national policy environment that enables the introduction of new approaches and strategies for malaria parasite elimination as a part of the national strategy.
“Sama Video, Sunu Sante,” (My Video, Our Health), is a program initiated by Speak Up Africa that gives the opportunity to the citizens of tomorrow to speak to health issues dear to their hearts through writing and performing short films with chaperones. The program was designed to provide an opportunity for individuals, particularly children in the communities, to speak about health problems in their daily lives.
In April 2015, we produced a Zero Malaria “Sama Video, Sunu Sante” that was shown to the World Malaria Day Celebration audience during the ceremony.
Speak Up Africa has partnered with the Children’s Investment Foundation Fund (CIFF), to create a bottom up demand in Tanzania, particularly by the rural poor, for midwives in local health facilities.
