Building Malaria Prevention Competition

Building Malaria Prevention Competition

The goal of the ARCHIVE’s CONSTRUIRE LA PRÉVENTION DU PALUDISME: Building Malaria Prevention competition is to retrofit 24 housing units in the community of Minkoaméyos in Yaoundé, Cameroon. The design of the housing units should combine the use of common sense principles and innovative ideas to minimize the transmission of malaria. Our campaign is unique in that we not only seek design excellence, but design that truly integrates architectural construction with community health improvements. ARCHIVE hopes that this campaign will raise awareness about the role of housing and environmental design by changing the way that communities deal with global health issues. While the ideas generated here will initially be locally specific, they should seek to be globally transferrable. For more information, please visit here.
