Project Description

Doctors Without Borders, also called Médecins Sans Frontières, is the world’s leading international medical relief organization. Their work focuses on emergency medical and humanitarian relief in almost 70 countries.

In order to support the amazing work that MSF does all over the world, INVIVO is collaborating on a number of pro-bono projects. A core element of this partnership is a series of high-impact animations that briefly outline the science behind major healthcare threats that appear in news headlines and that may not be well understood by the public.

The third video in the series, “The Science of Malaria” provides a brief overview of the disease depicting the lifecycle of the parasite. In addition, the video provides a summary of the symptoms associated with this disease.

This animation has been translated into several languages for use globally across the organization. It can be found on the MSF website as an educational tool, in press-releases and B-roll footage.
