Video: a new (old) tool to present research evidence to policy-makers (Jamie Guth, Global Health Connections)


This workshop presents lessons learnt on how and when to use

a video of research subjects as a research dissemination tool

with policy-makers. It is based on qualitative research that

examined the perceptions of policy-makers on the

Resistance101 and ResistanceSim: Gaming to understand insecticide resistance in vector control (Kirsten Duda, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine)


Facilitated training sessions using games could be the next novel approach of communicating information in vector-borne disease control programmes, from training microscopists to read blood slides, to demonstrating how a spray operator should properly perform indoor residual spraying. With the current increase in mobile technology, games have the potential to have a transformative impact in disease control.


In this workshop we will discuss the process and importance of developing innovative gaming tools to build capacity within the field of vector control.
