Malaria continues to be a life-threatening disease more than a 100 years after identification of the causative parasites. Over 3 billion people are at risk of malaria and every year this leads to nearly one million deaths in tropical and subtropical areas of over 100 countries. Our mission is to keep you out of these statistics.
Thousands of international travelers get Malaria annually. With global warming threatening to increase mosquito density it is important to keep up to date with all relevant information about this killer disease before you plan your holiday.
If not treated promptly with effective medicines, malaria can kill by infesting and destroying red blood cells and by clogging the capillaries that carry blood to the brain or other vital organs. Early diagnosis and treatment of malaria reduces disease and prevents deaths. It also contributes to reducing malaria transmission.
