In Burkina Faso, the proportion of fevers that can be caused by dengue fever is increasing. In 2013, an epidemic of dengue fever spread, followed by another in 2016. Dengue fever is often confused with malaria and health workers are not trained to distinguish between them. The video could help to overcome this lack of training since it is an effective knowledge transfer tool. However, the effectiveness of the videos has been little studied according to their narrative genre. Three training videos using different narrative genres (reporting, theater and cartoon) were tested with nursing students from two universities in Ouagadougou.
