What is malaria?

Malaria is a dangerous disease that can be life-threatening. Mosquitos carry and pass on a parasite when the bite, which then moves into your bloodstream. After the parasite has travelled to the liver and matured, they them begin infecting the red blood cells. 

How is malaria treated?

Treating malaria is usually done in a hospital in case the disease becomes life-threatening. Medications can be used after you become infected but it is advised to take anti-malarial medication prior to travelling to a high-risk area. These medicines work by killing the parasite while it's still developing so it cannot spread.
