Malaria remains a fact of life for billions of people living in tropical areas. Each year, malaria kills an estimated 429,000 people worldwide. In sub-Saharan Africa, infection with malaria parasites also makes young children more likely to die of pneumonia and diarrhea. Because malaria is one of the main reasons that children miss school and adults miss work, it is a disease that further hampers educational achievement, contributes to food insecurity, and entrenches poverty.
