World Malaria Day
Malaria is a serious illness spread by infected mosquito bites. Malaria can cause fever and chills, and if it is not treated promptly, can lead to death. More than 200 million people are affected by malaria every year. About half a million people die annually from it.
Half of the world is still at risk from this completely preventable and treatable disease, even in modern times. Although there have been many advances in fighting malaria over the past few decades, there has been some stagnation. This deadly disease is still a serious threat to the world.
Concerned citizens created World Malaria Day as part of a strategy to combat this disease.
World Malaria Day was established to reflect on the efforts of the Global Community in fighting this deadly disease. The Global Community, which has made significant progress in fighting Malaria, can re-group to help fight other infectious diseases in our society.
World Malaria Day is an international gathering of people who participate in activities and pledge to continue investing in the future to eradicate Malaria. This international observance was established by the World Health Assembly (WHO) in 2007.
This day has been promoted by a variety of groups, including multinational corporations like Malaria No More or Spread the Net, as well as grassroots organizations such the “Mosquitoes Suck Tour”.
World Malaria Day’s most important feature is its effort to involve the political and government leaders, communities and the private sector of African countries, where malaria cases are the highest. Encourage them to take steps that will benefit these people. This movement’s theme is “Zero Malaria Starts with Me”.
The importance of World Malaria Day was not lost on 2020 when it had to be re-instated online. However, people from all corners of the world were able to share their appreciation through virtual applause. It was meant to show appreciation for health professionals who fight malaria, Co-Vid, and other diseases.
It is vital to communicate the facts about malaria to ensure that the disease does not spread. World Malaria Day is growing with the aim of eliminating malaria in the next generation.
World Malaria Day is observed by many people around the world. This strong group can make a difference for a better tomorrow!
It is a great cause to get involved in, and can make a huge difference in your life. These are some ways you can get involved in helping eradicate malaria
It is a great way to support the fight against Malaria and to celebrate World Malaria Day. To invest in the future of fighting malaria and to regroup to fight other infections, people must first be educated. Many people, particularly in areas where malaria is not as prevalent, don’t know what to do.
A World Malaria Day event can help raise awareness, provide practical ways to help people and allow for open discussion about solutions. The End Malaria campaign has tools to engage the discussion around World Malaria Day.
You can host a bake sale or car wash, an online event, or any other activity that will help raise funds in your local community. This will help people be more aware of the issues surrounding malaria and raise funds for the fight.
You can involve schools, youth groups, health organisations, and other community groups who may be interested in raising funds to combat this deadly disease. The Against Malaria Foundation has information for those who wish to make a donation to buy protective nets.
You can also find other resources and information on malaria and World Malaria Day at the End Malaria website. Or visit the World Malaria Day website.
If you are unable to host an event in person it may be possible for you to join the World Malaria Day Events being held online. You can join in for a lecture or get resources that can be used to increase awareness via blogs, social media, educational websites, and other online platforms.
Even those who live far from malaria-prone areas can still benefit from being protected from mosquitos in certain seasons. Not only can mosquitoes carry malaria, but also many other diseases, including West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and Dengue.
Protecting yourself from disease-carrying insects is mainly about keeping them from your body. Wearing long sleeves and long pants outdoors at dusk or in the dark is a good idea. Light-colored clothes are also a good option as they are less attractive to mosquitoes than dark colors.
These are some ways to prevent mosquitoes biting.
