These animated films, featuring Ti-Joël, a famous Haitian cartoon character, employ educational and visual methods to show young people how to protect themselves from cholera at school and outdoors, how to purify water and how to prepare oral serum; they also stress the importance of not discriminating against people who have the disease.
