Lesson 6: Malaria
UNIT 6: MALARIA
In Unit 1 you learnt the principles of clinical problem solving. You should use those principles in this unit with special reference to malaria. Malaria is a complex problem that requires a variety of interventions if it is to be properly handled. In order to control and prevent malaria, there should be proper case management, vector control, and education of communities. To achieve control of malaria, any activity involved should break the man-mosquito cycle of transmission and its achievements must be sustained.
In this unit, you will learn about malaria with emphasis on its early recognition (diagnosis), case management, control and prevention, especially in children under 5 years of age and in pregnant women.
