Statistics

According to the World Malaria report, there were about 216 million cases of malaria and an estimated 655,000 deaths in 2010. Most deaths occur among children living in Africa where a child dies every minute from malaria. Malaria is a severe health problem in many of the warm temperate climates. The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) believes there are 300-500 million cases of Malaria every year and more than 1 million people die from it. In many parts of the world, primarily Africa and Asia, mosquitoes that carry malaria have developed high resistance to insecticides. In addition, the parasites have developed resistance to some medicines. These conditions have led to difficulty in controlling both the rate of infection and the spread of this disease. .

History

The history of malaria stretches from its prehistoric origin as a Zoonotic disease in the primates of Africa through to the 21st century. A widespread and potentially lethal human infectious disease, at its peak malaria infested every continent, except Antarctica. Its prevention and treatment have been targeted in science and medicine for hundreds of years. Since the discovery of the parasites that cause malaria, research has been focused on their biology, as well as that of the mosquitoes which transmit the parasites.

The Current Solutions

For many years Insecticides have played a major role in malaria prevention by killing mosquitoes. This unfortunately has not been enough as with time the mosquitoes became resistant. Similarly, mosquito nets were used and recently there was the introduction of treated nets. Millions of people still don't have access to these products due to poverty and or cultural practices. Statistics also showed that the mosquito changed their habits of biting during the night to now being day time thus spreading other diseases such as Dengue.

Traditional herbal remedies have been used to treat malaria. The first effective treatment for malaria came from the bark of cinchona tree, which contains quinine. After the link to mosquitoes and their parasites were identified in the early twentieth century, mosquito control measures such as widespread use of DDT, swamp drainage; covering or oiling the surface of open water sources, indoor residual spraying and use of insecticide treated nets was initiated. Prophylactic quinine was prescribed in malaria endemic areas with new therapeutic drugs including chloroquin and artemisinins used to resist the scourge. Between 2000 and 2012, the scale-up of interventions helped to reduce malaria incidence rates by 25% globally, and by 31% in the WHO African Region.

The global malaria mortality rate was reduced by 42% during the same period, while the decrease in the WHO African Region was 49%. Between 2000 and 2012, a scale-up of malaria interventions saved an estimated 3.3 million lives. 90%, or 3 million, of these are in the under-five age group in sub-Saharan Africa. 52 countries are on track to reduce their malaria case incidence rates by 75%, in line with World Health Assembly and Roll Back Malaria targets for 2015. These 52 countries only account for 4% (8 million) of the total estimated malaria cases. 59 countries are on track to meet the Millennium Development Goal target of reversing the incidence of malaria (between 2000 and 2015). International targets for reducing malaria cases and deaths will not be attained unless considerable progress is made in the 18 most affected countries, which account for an estimated 80% of malaria cases. About 40% of malaria deaths occur in just two countries: Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
