Malaria is a disease that is directly tied in with millions of people world wide and millions more indirectly. In a way it is a disease that affects the entire world, as the entire world is susceptible to it. Malaria is a disease that every person can find away to combat, even in the smallest of ways. As students in science 10 we can effectively make a difference once again through what we learned in our curriculum and what we can do as individual global citizens.
Malaria is a disease that once again mainly pertains to our biology unit. Although our level of learning and understanding of the disease may be limited, it is still enough to comprehend the diseases main characteristics and it is enough to understand how the disease behaves. From this we can inform and create awareness about the disease that we can communicate to others.
At home we can spread awareness about the disease in the same way that we can spread awareness about AIDS/HIV. We can seek to inform and educate others on the matter of Malaria and other such diseases and create a global understanding of the importance of awareness in MDG#6.
