Bilharzia Storytelling Lab Kenya

30 Jan 2021 13:00-15:30 CET

Our partner, Merck is hosting the Bilharzia Storytelling Lab in Kenya. It offers Kenyan community leaders and storytellers the opportunity to envision new ways of accessible and tailored disease information.

This event marks the end of a 3-week long online workshop in which six teams attended masterclasses on schistosomiasis and its implications. Further, the teams had the opportunity to exchange with local experts for health education and behavior change in order to get an in-depth understanding of what is needed to eliminate a disease such as schistosomiasis.

On this final day, local storytellers and community leaders will pitch their innovative ideas to help the elimination of Schistosomiasis in Kenya to judges from Merck and other partners for a chance of winning 10.000 USD for implementation.
