This Guide explains the terms, concepts, and rules of humanitarian law in accessible and reader-friendly alphabetical entries. The MSF Paediatric Days is an event for paediatric field staff, policy makers and academia to exchange ideas, align efforts, inspire and share frontline research to advance urgent paediatric issues of direct concern for the humanitarian field. The MSF Foundation aims to create a fertile arena for logistics and medical knowledge-sharing to meet the needs of MSF and the humanitarian sector as a whole.
The disease is easy enough to treat, but access to the most effective treatments remains inadequate. Impregnated mosquito nets are expensive and out of reach for many. The parasite which causes malaria is beginning to show resistance in parts of Asia to the most effective drug we have. And there are no new drugs in the development pipeline, meaning we could be left without effective options in the future. Mosquitoes breed in water and they are especially plentiful during the rainy season.
If the most basic prevention is to avoid bites by sleeping under insecticide-treated bed nets, the natural breeding ground of the insect needs to be eliminated. Spraying insecticide and drying sources of stagnant water are strategies used for controlling the proliferation of mosquitoes. Diagnosing malaria is done by using either a rapid diagnostic test or a microscope with a skilled laboratory person.

You get it when an infected mosquito bites you. Malaria is a major cause of death worldwide, but it is almost wiped out in the United States. The disease is mostly a problem in developing countries with warm climates. If you travel to these countries, you are at risk. There are four different types of malaria caused by four related parasites. The most deadly type occurs in Africa south of the Sahara Desert.
Malaria symptoms include chills, flu-like symptoms, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and jaundice. A blood test can diagnose it. It can be life-threatening.
