WHO: Malaria no longer leading child killer in sub-Saharan Africa

23.08.2016 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) There is good news in the fight against malaria, UN Radio says referring to the World Health Organization (WHO) report. As to the report, the disease is no longer the leading cause of death among children in sub-Saharan Africa. Reportedly, malaria is spread by infected mosquitoes and is preventable and curable. Insecticide-treated mosquito nets and indoor spraying help reduce transmission. As to the report, since 2000, the number of Africans dying from malaria has dropped by nearly 70% — what translates into more than six million lives saved, the majority of them children. But despite this progress, WHO says Africa still accounts for nearly 90% of malaria cases worldwide. The disease killed 400,000 Africans last year. The report admits gaps in access to prevention methods, as well as increasing resistance to medicines and insecticides, are among the main challenges in tackling malaria.
