Malaria's Medical Geography
10 pages in length. Malaria, one of the world's most communicable diseases, has its origin back when man befriended – and thus domesticated – various species of animals. Prominent in locations where hygiene is poor, water supplies are contaminated and mosquitoes are plentiful, malaria is both life threatening and extraordinarily prevalent – nearly forty percent – in today's underdeveloped countries. The one-cell parasite responsible for this highly infectious disease is called plasmodium and is delivered from one person to another by way of certain mosquito bites. Tropical climates are especially prone to these disease-carrying parasites, with Africa ranking among the highest mortality rates, an infestation that has been all but eliminated in more temperate atmospheric conditions across the globe.
