  • 3. Impact of Malaria
    • Malaria is both preventable and curable.
    • A child dies of malaria every 30 seconds.
    • More than one million people die of malaria every year, mostly infants, young children and pregnant women and most of them in Africa.
  • 4. Impact of Malaria
    • Malaria causes about 400–900 million cases of fever and approximately one to three million deaths annually.
    • This represents at least one death every 30 seconds.
    • The vast majority of cases occur in children under the age of 5 years, pregnant women are also especially vulnerable.
  • 5. History
    • Malaria has infected humans for over 50,000 years.
    • The term malaria originates from Medieval Italian: mala aria — "bad air"
    Area affected
  • 6. Symptoms
    • With malaria, you develop a high fever, which comes and goes every other day or few days.
    • People also will complain of headache, nausea, shaking chills (rigors), sweating, and weakness.
  • 7. Victims
  • 8. Fighting Malaria
    • DDT Spraying
    • Vaccine ( not available)
    • Bednets ( can be up to 95% effective)
  • 9. Sending Nets, Saving Lives The entire process of purchasing and distributing insecticide-treated bed nets to the most vulnerable people, as well as providing education and follow-up surveying on their use, is accomplished for just $10 per bed net. Although $10 for a bed net may not sound like much, the cost makes them out of reach for most people at risk of malaria in Africa, where many people survive on less than $1 per day. Nets are a simple, life-saving solution, but we need your help to provide them to those in need. Join us and Send a Net, Save a Life.
