Increasing the Awareness of Malaria Incidence in African Children and Pregnant Women

“Increasing the Awareness of Malaria Incidence in African Children and Pregnant Women” Malaria is a presentation about a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes. In 2012, malaria caused an estimated 627 000 deaths (with an uncertainty range of 473 000 to 789 000), mostly among African children. Malaria is preventable and curable. Increased malaria prevention and control measures are dramatically reducing the malaria burden in many places(WHO).

Malaria infection during pregnancy is a significant public health problem with substantial risks for the pregnant woman, her fetus, and the newborn child.
