In 2022, 7 cases of malaria were registered in Moldova, two of which resulted in death. Although Moldova is considered malaria-free, new cases of the disease appear every year. Specialists are sought to help in the fight against this dangerous disease.
On April 25th, World Malaria Day is celebrated, aimed at achieving zero malaria cases by 2030. To achieve this, it is necessary to invest in new technologies and strategies to provide access to malaria treatment and prevention.
Malaria is transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes and can lead to serious consequences, especially for pregnant women, children under 5, and people with HIV/AIDS. If a person develops symptoms of malaria (high fever, chills, headache) after visiting endemic countries, they need to seek medical help immediately.
According to the latest global report, 247 million cases of malaria were registered in 2021, slightly more than in 2020 (245 million).
