What is malaria and why does it become important in the area of health?

Malaria, also known as Malaria, causes high levels of morbidity and mortality in humans throughout the world, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Infection can have serious consequences, especially for children and pregnant women. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a little more than half a million people die each year from this disease. Malaria is caused by six species of parasites belonging to the genus Plasmodium: P. falciparum, P. knowlesi, P. vivax, P. malariae, P. ovale curtisi and P. ovale wallikeri. Technology has improved our knowledge of epidemiology, diagnosis, and importantly treatment and vaccine development.

The cycle begins with the bite of the female Anopheles mosquito, which inoculates the parasite into the vertebrate host while feeding, and the infectious process begins.

On World Malaria Day, ā€œLet's accelerate the fight against malaria for a more equitable worldā€ through:

End discrimination and stigma

Involve communities in health decision making

Through Primary Health Care, bring medical management closer to the places where people live and work

Address factors that increase the risk of malaria

Include malaria control interventions in universal health coverage

The use of insecticide-impregnated mosquito nets

Use of repellents

Drainage of stagnant water

Elimination of mosquito breeding sites

Furthermore, it is essential to promote access to timely diagnosis and treatment. Early detection and effective treatment of malaria can save lives and prevent serious complications. Diagnostic tests and antimalarial medications must be available and accessible to all people at risk.

In our ecommerce, we join the fight against malaria by offering products and advice for the prevention of diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. Take advantage of this World Malaria Day to explore our options and help create a safer, healthier environment.
