MALARIA NO MORE: Lives Saved
For the tenth anniversary of Malaria No More, I had the pleasure of donating my work and designing a data-driven embroidered scarf produced by local craftswomen that shows the global progress in the fight against malaria over the past ten years.
"Save More Lives, More Quickly Than Ever Before"
“In 2000, nearly one 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)
I started my design based on a dataset triggered by these facts.
A first prototype of the scarf was produced for the ten-year anniversary celebration.
The product is currently in production and will be available for purchase soon.
