Caption

Global malaria distribution. Artwork depicting the global distribution of malaria. A female mosquito, Anopheles sp. is sitting on the earth gorged with blood. This mosquito is a carrier of Plasmodium sp., the malarial parasite. Only female mosquitoes feed on human blood and hence transit malaria. While the mosquito feeds, the malaria parasite infects the human bloodstream. Malaria is found throughout the tropics, affecting southern Asia, South America and central and southern Africa. Symptoms of malaria include shaking, chills and fever. The disease can cause potentially lethal complications of the kidneys, liver, brain and blood.
