COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION

. We have trained and deployed volunteer high school and university students to their native village to raise awareness of their parents, relatives, neighbor and the community at all.

. HDAMA has initiated literature competition in 60 schools, which mainly focuses on the prevention and control of malaria and HIV/AIDS. Winners were awarded various books including Oxford Dictionary & Amharic novels. with this program the school and the general public as a whole were addressed.

. We had also used religious and public gatherings, and “idirs” as an opportunity to reach and educate the mass.

. Celebration of World Malaria Day (WMD): HDAMA took the initiative and prepared a plane for implementing WMD celebration by swimming at national level. Hence ,WMD has been launched in Ethiopia on April 17, 2011 through swimming for malaria control.

WMD was celebrated in three regions, namely Amhara Oromia and SNNPR, and also celebrated in two city administrations namely Addis Ababa and DireDawa at the same date and time . Also, various experts and heads of malaria partners made a press release on the swimming site and national and regional Medias broadcasted the event.
