Caption

Mosquito net. A boy sleeping under mosquito net. The net is impregnated with insecticide for use as a protective measure against mosquito bites but it is torn (lower left). This will significantly reduce its effectiveness. Physical barriers are important in preventing malaria as the malarial parasite becomes resistant to traditional anti-malarial drugs. Malaria is caused by a parasitic protozoan carried in the saliva of Anopheles mosquitoes. Symptoms include fever, and liver, kidney, blood and brain complic- ations which can be fatal. Other measures against mosquitoes include the use of protective clothing and insecticides. Photographed in Tanzania.
