DO THE ๐ŸฆŸ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟ #MOSQUITOCLAPCHALLENGE

When mosquitoes get in our faces, there is a swat or a clap weโ€™ll do to get rid of them. International Afropop dancer and choreographer Ezinne Asinugo has turned this clap into an easy 4-step dance routine โ€” the #MosquitoClapChallenge.

On World Mosquito Day, 20 August, weโ€™re inviting people everywhere to let the world hear loud and clear that in this new Covid world, we mustnโ€™t take our eyes off the prize... Zero Malaria!

Film yourself or with friends doing the 4-step clap, write a caption to include #MosquitoClapChallenge and @ZeroMalaria, and ideally tag a friend or two! Post on TikTok or share your video across your favourite social media. ๐Ÿคณ๐Ÿฟ

IT'S TIME TO SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐ŸŒ

In these times of Covid-19, the threat of malaria has not gone away. We must all see the Bigger Picture ๐ŸŒ.

The impact of the pandemic on malaria is beginning to unfold. The incredible progress we have made saving lives and improving access to healthcare over the last two decades will remain โ€” but only if we keep fighting. Thanks to the hard work of local advocates and health workers, many programs to prevent malaria are still going ahead. If we keep our focus on the goal of Zero Malaria, we can protect and strengthen our health systems and fight malaria and Covid-19 at the same time.

Malaria steals our children and holds back Africa's surging potential. The Bigger Picture campaign is calling the public, malaria champions, NGOs and the private sector to ask our world leaders to not take their eyes off the prize: a malaria-free Africa in a generation.
