Nobody needs to contract or die of malaria.Believe it. We need to uncross our arms. We can reduce and even end this human suffering.
"Malaria is an infectious human transmission invisible, non-contagious, acute febrile and potentially rapid and severe evolution if not treated early, mainly caused by P. falciparum, which alone is responsible for almost all deaths from malaria on the planet . This Plasmodium is present and unevenly distributed in most endemic areas or transmission in some regions and other less. In Africa, for example, about 90% of cases are by this parasite in Brazil, this percentage is about 30%. malaria protozoan for this is always a medical emergency that is appropriate and effective treatment is diagnosed quickly. Malaria vaccine does not have a specific and effective for any form or plasmodial Plasmodium. The major clinical complications are malaria the organ failure, so medical emergency. These complications are caused mainly by the intense cell destruction both blood and liver. Plasmodium destroys with the greatest skill and few sick days a huge number of red blood cells that compromise the survival of all other cells of the human organism, as are the red blood cells, the most specialized and responsible for transporting oxygen and metabolites that assure the lives of all others. Plasmodium, cell destruction and toxins derived from this destruction disrupt the operation of all organs, especially the brain. The kidneys, spleen, liver and lungs are functioning and also severely compromised. No other microscopic destroys human cells with great efficiency and speed. Tables of cerebral malaria that represent the most serious forms the disease usually becomes clinically irreversible and rapidly progress to death. Delayed diagnosis and treatment and chemoresistance to antimalarial drugs are the main causes. The neurological sequelae in children from third frames of cerebral malaria is a huge burden on health public and society. Why not think about it every day? " Wanir Barroso, sanitarian.
