Overview

Over a third of the world's population is at risk of malaria, with approximately 300 million people developing clinical disease each year. Transmission of the pathogen, the protozoan parasite Plasmodium spp., occurs during feeding of the Anopheles mosquito when the parasite enters the human circulation and invades liver and red blood cells.
