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 " (World Health Organization)
Based on a dataset representing the story above I started my design.
A first prototype of the scarf has been produced for the 10th year anniversary celebration event.
The product is currently in production and will be available for purchase soon.
