Malaria facts:

    Malaria is a widespread problem in tropical and subtropical regions generally around the equator. There's a significant risk of getting malaria if you live in or travels to affected areas.

    Malaria is a life-threatening mosquito-borne blood disease. It is transmitted to humans by Anopheles mosquitoes that carry a parasite called Plasmodium.
