Malaria is a major health problem in Africa, Asia, India & South America. It causes a severe fever & can lead to complications affecting the liver, brain & blood that can be fatal. Preventa- tive measures against mosquitoes are increasingly important, as the malaria parasites are developing resistance to anti-malarial drugs. These measures include using mosquito nets, protective clothing, insecticides & releasing sterile male mosquitoes.
