Malaria threatens 40% of the world’s population and kills about 2.5 million people every year. Most are children under five or pregnant women. In sub-Saharan Africa an estimated 70 million pre-school age children are at risk of dying of malaria. In addition, malaria among adults affects their ability to do productive work. All this means malaria is one of the biggest public health problems in many developing countries. Like the other diseases that we look at in this issue, malaria is transmitted by insects. Often people despair of their ability to do anything in the battle against malaria, especially as health budgets may be reduced or essential drugs become unavailable. In this issue we try to look at positive steps which can be taken ‘on our own doorstep’ without access to large resources.
