This book underscores how, apart from bacteriological factors, human behavioural characteristics as well as the socio-cultural factors that affect people’s lives contribute to the risk for and prevention of infection, with particular focus on malaria.

Historically, social scientists have had little or no role in the design and evaluation of malaria control programs. In modern malaria control programs, there is a clear need for applied social science research and the participation of social : Stanley C.

It reflects the predisposition of the populations or individuals to malaria infection and theirs ability to mitigate the risk of malaria. Indicators of human poverty, including health indicators, often reflect severe gender – based disparity.

In this way, gender inequality is a significant determinant of health outcomes in the Region, with women and girls often at a severe social disadvantage.

Importantly, some themes and sub-themes arose unexpectedly from the narratives; we did not, for example, set out to explore issues of bednet use during social events but this arose as an important aspect of malaria-related behaviour and, indeed, is a theme which is under-researched in the context of malaria risk by: Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite.

People with malaria often experience fever, chills, and flu-like illness. Left untreated, they may develop severe complications and die.

In an estimated million cases of malaria occurred worldwide andpeople died, mostly children in the African Region.

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite that commonly infects a certain type of mosquito which feeds on humans.

People who get malaria are typically very sick with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like illness. Although malaria can be a deadly disease, illness and death from malaria can usually be prevented.

Malaria, through mosquitoes, has always been intertwined with human history, its politics, warfare, social aspirations. What the author seems to emphasize, and I agree, /5.

Some climate models suggest that human activities may have exacerbated this phase by raising the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
