Caption: Child under mosqito net. Iraqi boy sleeping under a mosquito net in Batta, Iraq, in temperatures of 54 degrees Celsius (130 degrees Fahrenheit). The mesh of the net prevents mosquitoes from biting the boy as he sleeps. This can help prevent the spread of malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases. Malaria is caused by protozoan parasites that are transmitted by the bites of mosquitos. It causes periodic fevers and can kill. It affects millions of people in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Photographed in June 2008.
