The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 584,000 people died in 2013 from malaria, a preventable and curable disease transmitted to people through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitos. Nearly half of the world’s population is at risk, but the most common victims are women and children in Africa.
In support of World Malaria Day’s mission to share resources, engage in dialogue, contribute views, ideas and events to mobilize the world against malaria, Oxford University Press is highlighting top articles about malaria research and prevention from journals published on behalf of the Entomological Society of America, Infectious Diseases Society of America, and Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society.
