Vector-Borne Disease Education
Eradicate! is a single-player card game in which you are a village leader tasked with managing a small team in an effort to eradicate mosquitoes. Clear water and mosquito eggs (larva) from identified breeding grounds before the mosquitoes attack and weaken your team with a debilitating vector-borne disease.
Eradicate! informs players of how mosquitoes serve as the vectors in the transmission of vector-borne disease such as dengue, malaria, chikungunya, and Zika. The game also introduces external factors that can both increase or reduce habitat and mosquito population proliferation. Eradicate! is designed to act as a starting point for discussions either in a classroom or workshop setting about vector-borne disease transmission and related environmental effects. It is also available in Spanish and Portuguese.
Eradicate! is a single-person variant of Human vs. Mosquitoes that emphasizes learning through a first person, human-centric perspective.Buy Now
