Caption: Mosquito. Close-up of a mosquito on human skin. It's body is engorged with blood that it has suck- ed from its human host. Mosquitoes transmit dise- ases such as malaria, viral encephalitis, yellow fever, filariasis and dengue. Malaria is a major health problem in Africa, Asia, India & South America. Malaria causes a severe fever & can lead to complications affecting the liver, brain & blood that can be fatal. Preventative measures against mosquitoes are important, as the malaria parasites are developing resistance to anti- malarial drugs. Measures include using mosquito nets, protective clothing, insecticides & releas- ing sterile males.
