Today's World Malaria Day, an event to mark worldwide conditions and approaches to Malaria. Malaria is a misnomer used to stand for a mosquito borne disease caused Plasmodium group of parasite. Previously thought disease was originated from Area of unhygienic (Mal - Aria) status.

Plasmodium depends of both Human and Mosquito to complete it's life cycle. In human body, depending on its severity and species, it creates Malarial fever to Cerebral malaria (Brain Manifestation), Black water fever and many more complications.


 

In Bangladesh, it's also creating a number of headache of government policy makers of health sectors. Whole Bangladesh is considered under a Malaria affected zone, but Hill tracts are in special attention. Even before going some area is it's recommended to take Pre-exposure prophylactic anti malarial drug. But even in some cases, there have been evidence of Drug Resistant Malaria. Newer drugs are coming but producing more side effect.

Even excluding the worse, Our hope is rising to control malaria. In our Local Medical Study, Malaria is highlighted much more. Public awareness is also rising & different health sector programs are coming on front line to give effective measures like distributing mosquito nets, insecticides and drugs for free to poor and affected people. Lets hope for Bangladesh to Eliminate the Malaria soon.
