Scientific Animation Without Borders: additional visual tools for low-literacy health education
Another very useful link to animated videos to teach basic health information. Posted recently by our colleagues at HIFA2015. They have great videos on Dengue, hand washing, cholera, rehydration therapy, how to used metered-dose inhalers, malaria, TB and maternal health. Just to re-cap, so far, we have 1) Global Health Media Project; 2) Medical Aid Films; and 3) Scientific Animation Without Borders. Each of these are great visual resources to leach low literacy learners. Please continue to share your own similar resources. As a nurse, I'm always looking for better and better patient education tools.
From their Assistant Director:
"Our core areas are health, agriculture and women empowerment. Our approach is to explain or show a technique through animations in 3D in a simple way that can be understood by low literate learners that lack access to information and knowledge. We believe that perhaps reaching the target audience, low literate learners, in their own local language and through animations showing a simple technique, could help to improve their livelihoods. These animations can be watched through cell-phones and transmitted from cell-phone to cell-phone through Bluetooth."
