MALARIA MALARIA IS A LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE CAUSED BY A PARASITE TRANSMITTED VIA THE BITES OF INFECTED MOSQUITOES.

IT IS BOTH PREVENTABLE AND CURABLE HALF THE WORLD IS AT RISK 219,000,000 1,666 Most malaria cases and deaths occur in sub-Saharan Atrica.

Partisl immunity is developed over years of exposure, and while it never provides complete protection, it does reduce the risk that malaria infection will .cause severe disease. For this reason, most malaria deaths in Atrica occur in young Transmission depends on climatic condtions that may a tlect the number and survival of mosquitoes, such as rain tall patterns, temperature and humidity. In many places, transmission is seasonal, with the paak during and just ofter the rainy season. Malaria epidemics can occur when climate and other conditions suddenly favor transmission in areas where children, whereas in areas wth less transmission and low immunity, all age groups are at risk paople have little or na immunity to malaria. se occur wten ceple with low munty m an areas with intense malaria tranemission, for instance to tind work, on vacation, or as retugees TRANSMISSION INTENSITY PARASITE VECTOR Malaria is caused by Flasmodium parasites. The parasites are spread to people through the bites of indected Anopheles mosquitoes, known as "malaria vectors". Four parasite species cause malaria in humans Malaria is transmitted exclusvely through the bites of female Anopheles mosequtoes 20 different Anopheles species are localb mportant around the world PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUMO PLASMODIUM VIVAX Anopheles mosquitoes breed in water and each specias has its own breeding preference, for example some preter shallow collections of fresh water, such Bs pudles, rice fields, and hoot prints PLASMODIUM MALARIAE PLASMODIUM OVALE oecesrs see coses f va eakaoctw Pases Transmission is more intense in places where the mosquito lifespan s longer so that the parasite has time ta complete its davelopment inside the mosquito and where it prefers to bite hurmans rather than other animals.
