Today is World Malaria Day

Did you know that today – 25th April – is World Malaria Day?  According to the World Health Organization, malaria is responsible for around 660,000 human deaths every year, and around 3.3 billion people – that’s about half of the world’s population – are at risk. It’s fitting therefore that we should know more about the risks that malaria presents and where in the world the risks are greatest (see the WHO country profiles). World Malaria Day aims to raise awareness about, and control the spread of, malaria.

    World Malaria Day reminds everyone to be aware about Malaria and preventing this anymore. I hope this year the cause of death of many people through Malaria will be minimized or should i wish would be gone.
