MALARIA NO MORE: lives saved

For the 10th anniversary of Malaria no More, I've had the pleasure to donate my work and design a data-driven embroidered scarf produced by local craftswomen, showing showing the global progress in the malaria fight in the last 10 years.

"Save More Lives, More Quickly Than Ever Before

In 2000, nearly 1 million people were dying every year from mosquito bites, mostly kids and moms in africa.
Since that time, the rate of global deaths has declined 60% and global infections by 37%.
This translates to 6.2 million lives saved and 1.2 billion cases averted between 2000 and 2015 (WHO)"

Based on a dataset representing the story above I started my design.
