Spotlight on Malaria: Can We End it for Good?

Living in Arizona in the summers, mosquitoes are a nuisance. My husband and I cover ourselves and our toddler in bug spray to play outside in the early evenings. At worst, we have itchy welts for a few days and apply some anti-itch cream for good measure. We’re lucky in this regard. Throughout parts of sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, mosquito bites are more than just annoying. In those areas, female Anopheles mosquitoes carry malaria, a deadly disease.

Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes World Malaria Day on April 25. But what is this disease? And how can you and I help? Below are 5 important facts with ways that YOU can help end it for good!

1. Malaria is transmitted through mosquito bites.

But, the disease is actually caused by a parasite carried by the mosquito. These parasites grow in the liver and then move to the entire body’s red blood cells. Symptoms include fever, chills, headache, fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Without treatment, it can quickly progress to severe illness and death.

2. Some groups are at risk more than others.

In areas with high malaria rates, young children under age 5 and pregnant women are most vulnerable to contracting the disease and having severe, life-threatening symptoms.

3. The economic consequences are dire.

Malaria does mean loss of life, first and foremost. But one of the hidden consequences of the disease are the economic costs. One study estimates that in Africa, malaria has cost up to $12 billion in economic productivity, investment, tourism and trade. In some sub-Saharan countries, 40% of the public health budget is spent on malaria. When this disease is prevented, tremendous economic power is added back to countries.
