At the end of the 20th century, childhood mortality caused by malaria was on the increase.   Some malaria endemic countries particularly in South America and Asia are developing a strong research base but for most African endemic countries, which represent 90 % of the world’s malaria burden, the figures are often of the order of less than 50 per million, i.e. two log orders less than in resource rich by:

Symptoms usually begin ten to fifteen days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. If not properly treated, people may have recurrences of the Causes: Plasmodium spread by mosquitos.

However, the scale-up of effective, safe, and proven prevention and control interventions made possible by global support and national commitment has shown that the impact of malaria on residents of malaria-endemic countries can be dramatically reduced when these are used together.

Malaria Treatment and Prevention Interventions. Control. Two concepts are central to this chapter: control and eradication. By control, we mean a public policy intervention that restricts the circulation of an infectious agent beyond the level that would result from spontaneous, individual behaviors to protect against infection (Barrett ).
