What is the Defenders of Health game?
The Defenders of Health game is an educational adventure that takes children and caregivers on a journey to discover the ways health professionals are defending lives around the world.
They will meet Defenders in different parts of the globe who will teach them about the tools that they use in their everyday tasks.
Meet the Defenders
Hi! My name is Yameena!
I am a doctor in Pakistan and my life-saving object is the Polio Vaccine. It has saved the lives of many children. Vaccines work by increasing our natural defence against diseases.
Hello, my name is Juwon!
I am a community health worker in Nigeria and my life-saving object is a mosquito net. In some countries around the world, mosquitos carry a bad disease called malaria that can make people very sick. We use mosquito nets to protect people from getting bitten.
Hey there! My name is Deji!
I’m a lab technician in Sierra Leone and my life-saving object is a microscope. My microscope helps me to identify microorganisms that are responsible for viruses and diseases!
Hi, I’m Annie!
I’m a driver in the UK and my van is my life-saving object! I drive vaccines and medications to hospitals and doctor’s offices, helping them to stay cool and fresh, and making sure everyone has access to the medicines they need to stay healthy.
Hello! I’m Eshaal!
I’m a midwife in Bangladesh. My object is my gloves – they are very important to help me to keep newborn babies and their mothers safe from dirt and germs!
Hey! I’m Oscar!
I’m a nurse here in the UK. My facemask is my life-saving object. Nurses are exposed to lots of different illnesses and facemasks play an important role in protecting us and our patients!
