World Health Organization
Malaria is an infection caused by a parasite and carried from person to person by mosquitoes. It is preventable and curable but kills more than one million people—most of them young children living in Africa—each year.
Global Health Reporting
Malaria, one of the world's most common and serious tropical diseases, causes at least one million deaths every year -- the majority of which occur in the most resource-poor countries. More than half of the world's population is at risk of acquiring malaria, and the proportion increases each year because of deteriorating health systems, growing drug and insecticide resistance, climate change, natural disasters and armed conflict.
