This Week- Malaria Disease, Treatment, and Prevention (Part 1)

Malaria is an infection caused by the Plasmodium parasite which infects red blood cells. There are different types of Plasmodium parasites. In 1889, it was discovered that mosquitoes transmitted malaria. Signs and symptoms include fever, headache, vomiting that usually appear 10 to 15 after being bitten by a carrier mosquito. If not treated immediately, the condition can be life threatening.

Preventive measures are primarily aimed at controlling vector mosquitoes through the use of insecticidal nets and indoor spraying of insecticides. Follow up on the links provided below for additional information on the disease, treatment modalities and preventive measures.
