Malaria continues to be a global health challenge. More number of people die of malaria than any other single infectious disease world over. While the occurrence of malaria is mainly localized to tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, the numbers of people infected with malaria are very large. Recent WHO survey reports over 500 million cases of malaria annually, resulting in more than 2 million deaths, of which about a million are children in sub-saharan Africa. Global warming together with increasing travel and communication between under-developed and developed nations is predicted to aid further spread of malaria in the world.
