Educating communities on mosquito-borne diseases

To create a better, healthier world, we need to take global action and make a difference on the ground in local communities.

We’re harnessing the power of local educational efforts and partnerships to help families protect themselves from mosquito-borne diseases.

Protection beyond products

Fighting mosquito-borne diseases with education

As part of our efforts toward helping families take action to protect themselves from mosquito-borne diseases, we equip them with vital resources.

Our disease prevention efforts include working hard to educate families about how to avoid insects that may carry diseases — especially those like malaria and dengue that are transmitted by female Aedes mosquitoes. 

Education in action

Partnerships and initiatives that build awareness

How do we spread vital knowledge about mosquito-borne diseases? Through collaborations with local government, sharing information in-store, product sampling and more. 

Sponsored by SC Johnson brands including Raid®, Autan®, OFF!® and Baygon®, these programs take place in locations around the world making a difference as an important way to build awareness about the possible transmission of mosquito-borne diseases.

A spotlight on our Chau Mosquito campaign

Currently, SC Johnson’s “Chau Mosquito” campaign program is making a difference in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. It includes mosquito prevention education and training on how to use repellents to best fight mosquito-borne disease.

The program develops a wide range of materials and resources, both printed and digital, for health professionals and institutions, teachers and schools, and community leaders and organizations. 

Since the program’s inception in 2016, SC Johnson has reached 900,000 families with educational resources and more than 1 million donated SC Johnson products.
