MALARIA TRANSMISSION .
Uganda has the 3rd highest global burden of malaria cases (5%) and the 8th highest level of deaths (3%)
It also has the highest proportion of malaria cases in east and southern Africa 23.7%. and there’s stable perennial malaria transmission in 95% of the country
The country experiences two malaria transmission types.
- Stable, perennial malaria transmission which exists in 90-95% of the country
- Low and unstable transmission with the potential for epidemics in 5-10% of the country
Transmission peaks are aligned with the two annual rainy seasons, which take place from march to may and from September to November.
This disease is mainly transmitted by a VECTOR called a mosquito and majorly an anopheles mosquito.
At the Malaika medical clinic We are tirelessly fighting these diseases among the children in our communities with our major theme ‘’ END MALARIA TODAY’’
