Supported by the local Red Cross Society, CDC, hospitals and other healthcare organizations, the gold award winning team designed a Chinese-Tibetan bilingual picture book called Goodbye! Little Monster of Infectious Disease and developed matching audio picture book, cultural products and health knowledge testing systems in order to improve the hygiene and mental health of children in agricultural and rural areas. The project covered 8 primary and secondary schools in Chamdo, and benefited more than 4,610 teachers and students.
