Malaria during pregnancy: A brief overview

Author(s): Daniel Suarez Flores

Malaria, a parasitic infection transmitted by mosquitoes, is one of the most ruinous contagious conditions, killing further than 1 million people annually. Pregnant women, children, and immunocompromised individualities have the loftiest morbidity and mortality, and Africa bears the heaviest burden. The World Health Organization defines malaria as a complaint of poverty caused by poverty. Pregnant women infected with malaria generally have more severe symptoms and issues, with advanced rates of confinement, intrauterine demise, unseasonable delivery, low- birth- weight babes, and neonatal death. They’re also at a advanced threat for severe anemia and motherly death. Malaria can be averted with applicable medicines, bed nets treated with germicide, and effective educational outreach programs.
