Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes.
“About 3.3 billion people – half of the world’s population – are at risk of malaria. Every year, this leads to about 250 million malaria cases and nearly one million deaths. People living in the poorest countries are the most vulnerable.
Malaria is especially a serious problem in Africa, where one in every five (20%) childhood deaths is due to the effects of the disease. An African child has on average between 1.6 and 5.4 episodes of malaria fever each year. And every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.
This fact file presents the extent and effects of malaria and how it can be prevented and controlled.”
