*Antipyretics @ Rs. 5.00-10.00 per treatment

I/V fluid may be required during Artemisinin treatment

malaria in pregnancy
Malaria in Pregnancy
  • Pregnant women attract twice the number of mosquitoes than non-pregnant women
  • There is a greater susceptibility to P. falciparum than P. vivax during pregnancy
  • Low birth weight babies in malarious areas are 2 to 4 times more likely to experience failure in school.
endless vicious cycle of malaria
Endless Vicious Cycle of Malaria
  • Malaria is the leading cause of anemia
  • Malaria affects cognitive development and learning abilities of children
  • Malaria is a risk factor of neuro-sensory and behavioral development in children
  • Malaria-one clinical febrile episode of malaria consumes 5,000 k Cal.

FACTORS THAT WILL INCREASE MALARIA
  • Irrigation
  • Urbanization
  • Industrialization
  • Migration
  • Natural disasters
  • Resistance in vectors and parasites
  • Global warming
  • Malaria control costs
  • Political instability/war

“Everything about malaria is so molded by local conditions that it becomes a thousand epidemiological puzzles. Like chess, it is played with a few pieces but is capable of an infinitevariety of situations.”

- L.W. Hackett (1937)

persistent organic pollutants
PERSISTENT ORGANIC POLLUTANTS

Eight Pesticides

Aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, mirex and toxaphene

Two Industrial Chemicals

PCBs and hexachlorobenzene

Two unwanted by-products of combustion and Industrial Processes

Dioxins and furans

times of india 24 november 1944 on the introduction of ddt on december 2 1944

TIMES OF INDIA24 November 1944(On the introduction of DDT on December 2, 1944)

“It should be stressed that it is a re-enforcement and not a substitute for existing well tried systems of malaria control, which should on no account be relaxed. But we believe that DDT is going to have a big future in the fight against malaria and dysentery in post-war India”
