What is malaria?
Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes.
Symptoms: high fever, headache, vomitting, shaking & chills, profuse sweating, diarrhea.
Malaria is curable and preventable, nearly 660,000 people worldwide die of it every year.
Why are people at risk?
Lack of education. Many do not know how to identify or precent the disease.
Lack of money. Many cannot afford preventative measures or treatment.
In West Africa, very poor families can spend up to one-third of their income dealing with malaria.
That's equivalent to a family in the U.S. with an annual income of $50,000 devoting $16,667 each year to one illnes.
That's money that could be spent on: shelter, food, schooling, other medical needs.
