The Role of Man as a Component of the Environment in the Fight against Malaria

Michael Kofi Annan

Abstract: Malaria is one of the deadly diseases in the world and the leading cause of death among children under five years old and pregnant women in the sub-Saharan Africa. The fight against this deadly infectious disease began over a century ago. Although a great stride has been reached, there still remain much to be done since the disease continues to show its ugly face in the sub-region and remains the number one killer among children and pregnant women. Several interventions have been put in place, all in an attempt to eradicate the disease over the years by several agencies especially the World Health Organization, yet none of the interventions has been able to achieve the desired goal though several headways have been made. It is an established fact that no single intervention has been proved to be most effective in the fight against the disease, a multiple interventions strategy is highly recommended. Despite the implementation of this strategy over a period of time, the stronghold of the disease seems not to be shaken in any way. The study thus seeks to review the available interventions to ascertain the effectiveness of these interventions in the fight against the disease and suggest ways teacher trainees can contribute to the fight against malaria.
