A British company, Medikidz, is offering comics to kids that discuss chronic illness, including asthma, HIV, and type I diabetes.
“When children fall ill they naturally look to adults for courage, comfort and explanation. In most cases these adults are unprepared and unqualified to deal with these situations and they have no useful information to give to young people to explain what is happening to them.”
These comics, written by doctors for children, try to bridge that gap. With the colorful illustrations and creative adventures through the human body and beyond, who wouldn’t want to learn about health with Medikidz?
