Across the continent, an African child dies every 30 seconds of malaria. As analyzed in the article, this situation leads to a poverty-malaria succession. A combination of factors makes it difficult for Africa to tame malaria. Malaria thrives in certain global zones because of geography, poverty and existing infected mosquito populations; of which absolutely depicts Africa’s current situation. Infection is a constant hazard for the majority of its population and is a constant challenge and resource drain for its government. Poverty remains at its root and had been so strong that it manage to sustain the cycle. And those borders are widening. Malaria causes a negative cycle, that is, impoverished people without access to prevention methods and health systems are infected at the highest rates. Then, the disease slows development by overwhelming households and existing infrastructure. The weight of malaria on fragile governments and social services reduces the economic growth of countries. The result is even more poverty, increasing the number of people who are vulnerable to malaria.Currently, there is no vaccine, but treatment is available. With that, prevention methods must well understand and be made relatively inexpensive. Mosquito-killing sprays and bed nets protect people from the tiny bite that means infection, and often death. The challenge remains to spread knowledge and resources across borders to those in need. Hopefully, programs mentioned in the article such as mosquito-control program using DDT.
