choosemosquitoframe.jpegThe Life Cycle of Malaria is an edutainment game that informs players about malaria in a creative manner. By allowing players to role-play as the mosquito and the malaria parasite, and interacting with different stages of the disease's life-cycle, this application (currently only available for Android, with development of PCs and Iphones in progress) offers an alternative way of learning about malaria.

Fighting malaria is one of the major objectives of the Nuffield Department of Medicine. Many scientists within the department are currently working to find new ways to improve the lives of the millions of people worldwide who are affected by malaria each year. Download it here.
