MALARIA FACTS:

This fact file presents the extent and effects of malaria and how it can be prevented and controlled. • 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, between the ages of 1 and 11, has on average between 1.6 and 5.4 episodes of malaria super fever each year. • And every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.

How did this all start? More than 80% of malaria deaths occur in Africa, with approximately 240-300 million cases recorded each year. It is the leading cause of death in children under five years and a significant risk factor of pregnant woman.

What is our goal? In some studies, malaria and HIV/AIDS co-infection was associates with increase risk or maternal, prenatal and early infant deaths.

E-mail: Message:

What is the success rate? Many studies have also confirmed that HIV-infected adults in malaria endemic areas are at increased risk of malaria. Coinfection appears to increase the severity and complications associated with malaria in adults.

Malaria, caused by a parasite called Protozoa is said to attack and kill several millions of people worldwide annually.  A number of medical doctors interviewed on the subject confirmed that the disease indeed, kills faster than HIV and AIDS.  Dr. David Nortey, Medical Officer indicated that global data available points to the fact that the disease is silently killing more people than deadly HIV and AIDS.  He attributed this to the inability of the patients, most of who live in Malariaendemic countries, to have access to proper medical care.  According to him, malaria as the main cause of death among patients. It tops the list of recorded illnesses, especially among children under 5.
