During the seven years of research starting in 2012 and resulting in the documentary “THE FEVER”, it became blatantly clear, that the only sustainable strategies against malaria are local strategies based on indigenous knowledge.
In 2019 “THE FEVER” finally had its world premiere and caused a lot of public discourse about neocolonial patterns and public health. We realized it was a project we had to continue.
“Fight The Fever” was officially established on February 27th 2020 as an organization to support local strategies against malaria.
“THE FEVER” hit the cinemas in September 2020 and we used the opportunity to kickoff of the “Fight The Fever” campaign. After a couple of lockdowns and a lot of work, the seed for a government supported study on Artemisia afra and participatory documentary project was planted in Tanzania in July 2021.
