The Zika, dengue and chikungunya prevention school / youth module is intended for volunteers, educators, and peer educators teaching children from ages 7 – 16 in a school or youth club setting about the transmission, symptoms, treatment and prevention methods to address Zika, dengue and chikungunya (ZDC). The school / youth module is comprised of 5 topics which should be taught in sequential order. The included tools, talking points and activities allows children to learn in an interactive way about how ZDC is transmitted, how to prevent mosquito bites and reduce mosquito populations through collective school community action and social and behavior change techniques as well as what to do if a child suspects that s/he or a family member thinks they may have contracted Zika, dengue or chikungunya. The materials also address stigma associated with ZDC and help to set a supportive environment for preventing disease as a collective group through ongoing school community action.
