Why not just distribute bed nets?
… unless people in the town have
other needs for nets.

Bed nets are an effective way to
prevent mosquito bites and
dengue fever transmission…
Other uses for bed nets: protect garden from animals, enclose a chicken coop,
wear as a wedding veil, store food in a hammock above the ground, fish for food
Cultural factors: attracts ghosts, women cannot conceive under a bed net, a
certain percentage of people are just going to die of dengue or malaria
Created by Yale Graduate Students in
Environmental Science Class for
International Red Cross/Red Crescent
The game teaches children and adults in foreign countries

malaria, could increase with climate change.
