One of the oldest diseases in history, malaria was once common all over the world. Some scientists believe that malaria may have killed more people than any other disease in human history. Fortunately, doctors now understand the causes of the disease and have developed effective treatments. Yet in some parts of the world, malaria continues to kill hundreds of thousands of people each year. In fact, its estimated that every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from this terrible disease. Why is this super killer still taking so many lives? And will humans ever conquer malaria once and for all? In Malaria: Super Killer!, children will learn all about this disease, including its history, how it spreads, and how doctors and organizations continue to work to eradicate the illness from impoverished areas. Readers will also meet individuals like Dawn Dubsky, a malaria survivor from Chicago who founded America Against Malaria, a group working to defeat the disease in the African nation of Ghana.
From the Publisher:
Looks at the disease malaria, its causes, how it is spread, how it affects the body, how it is prevented, its history, and efforts to eradicate it.
