World Mosquito Program

A world-class multilingual digital solution that promotes the program's scientific and community advances around the world.

The World Mosquito Program is a not-for-profit initiative that’s protecting communities around the world from mosquito-borne diseases. Pioneered by Australian researchers at Monash University, they use safe and natural bacteria called Wolbachia to reduce the number of people contracting mosquito-borne diseases.

Digital Garden collaborated with the World Mosquito Program and Monash University stakeholders to deliver a world-class multilingual digital solution that promotes the Program's scientific and community advances and drives its growth around the world.

Throughout the project lifecycle, Digital Garden conducted many activities, including:

  • Discovery, UX & UI - Kickoff meeting; Codesign workshop; Prototyping/UX discovery/User interviews; Initial UI design concept; UI design all templates;
  • Content Strategy - Content strategy workshop; Content audit; SEO/keyword audit; Content audit recommendations report, classifications & governance model:
  • Development - Technical workshop, Migration of some key legacy content audited using; rigorous internal quality assurance testing and user acceptance testing.

The World Mosquito Program and Monash University stakeholders are thrilled with their new digital platform, which showcases the WMP as a world-class organisation.

 

The Wolbachia method
The World Mosquito Program uses safe and natural bacteria called Wolbachia to prevent the transmission of mosquito-borne viral diseases such as dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever.
User Experience research

As part of our design process, Digital Garden conducted User Experience research to understand potential users of the website.

What we wanted to find out was:

  • What kinds of content we expect will resonate with users
  • What users might want when using the WMP website
  • Users’ behaviour as they interact with a WMP digital experience

A core part of the World Mosquito Program's brief for Digital Garden was to create a robust multilingual platform that allowed for the website to be published in various languages. The site has been launched in English as the main global language and in Spanish to support WMP's audience engagement in Latin America:
