In the spring 2019, Journalist Bettina Illemann Larsen and photojournalist Benjamin Nørskov co-operated on an a large online BA-project about the fight against malaria. Their stories are now online at – the Danish national broadcast station. The story about the use of gen-modified mosquitoes as the fight against malaria can be read here.
