Malaria is prevalent in nearly 100 countries worldwide, exacting a huge toll on human health and imposing a serious social and economic burden
on many developing countries. This disease has caused significant morbidity and mortality in resource-poor regions, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa,
South Asia and Latin America. The Anopheles mosquito, which transmits malaria parasites to humans, thrives in warm, tropical, and subtropical climates.
While anyone living in or visiting an endemic country may be at risk, high-risk groups include travellers, campers, refugees, Military and Armed Forces,
displaced persons, and migrant workers entering endemic areas. Alarmingly, according to UNICEF, the economic loss due to Malaria in Africa alone is
estimated to be $12 Billion annually*.
