  10. 11. -Malaria -Dengue fever -Leishmaniasis
  11. 12. - Malaria is a serious, sometimes fatal, disease caused by a parasite. - Humans get malaria from the bite of a malaria-infected mosquito - Malaria occurs in over 100 countries and territories. More than 40% of the people in the world are at risk. -Symptons: • Fever • Headache • Shaking chills • Muscle aches • Tiredness • Nausea • Vomiting • Diarrhoea • Anaemia • Jaundice (yellow colouring of the skin and eyes) • Kidney failure • Seizures • Mental confusion • Coma • Death -This disease is transmitted by the dengue mosquito. - Epidemic transmission is usually seasonal, during and shortly after the rainy season. -This disease occurs normally in tropical countries. - Dengue fever is characterised by sudden onset Symptons: High fever Severe headaches Joint pain Muscle pain Nausea/vomiting, Rash. The rash may appear 3–4 days after the onset of fever Haemorrhages Shock
  12. 13. -This is a parasitic disease spread from rodents by the bite of infected sand flies -Sand flies are very small and maybe, hard to see. -They are more active in evening and night time hours. -They are three types of Leishmaniasis: Leishmania cutanea, Leishmaniasis braziliensis and Leishmaniasis viscerale .
