Protecting Children from Malaria Health Risks

As we approach the rainy season, malaria outbreaks are starting to rise.  While malaria has always been a concern for adults and children alike, there has been little emphasis on the harm malaria causes to pregnant women and their unborn children.

In recent years the WHO South East Asian Regional Office, Delhi, and CDC, in collaboration with the National Institute of Malaria Research (NIMR), have been studying the affects malaria is having on children born from mothers infected with malaria.  According to the CDC, they have found that, severe cases of malaria in Africa has led to substantial cognitive impairment and learning disabilities, and they are currently investigating if similar affects occur in Asian countries.
