Well- awareness is the basic. Prevention stars after that. We need to understand (and especially in low-income countries) awareness is one of the major factors. People do not know what can cause them malaria (or any other thing like dengue etc), or if they know its more academic.
Yes, we have government and nongovernment awareness programs, but I think its still not enough. I think public-private partnership, govt-public partnership, and accountability programs are the must. Decentralization of responsibilities is also important in public service and healthcare departments. We see Delhi is a classic example of failure in poor management (and it includes all - public, city and govt). They spend a lot of money on dengue awareness every year, but it still repeats.

Thanks for your answer Hitesh. You're right that awareness is the first thing that we can do. However, the awareness program is being carried out by government since ages regarding Malaria and still we are unable to get rid of it. What could be the reason behind it? - Abhishek 25 months ago
Caused by several species of the parasite plasmodium. Plasmodium falciparum causes the most severe form of the illness. Fever, chills, sweating are the common symptoms. Medication is the treatment option. - Dr. David E. 13 months ago

Did you believe that cannabis, as also known as only for addiction, is now can be your alternative medicine? Cannabis now has many benefits that will be good for your health. Cannabis oil is produced by extracting the resin of the female cannabis plant using a solvent. After the resin is dissolved in the solvent, it is evaporated leaving a concentrated extract behind. CBD Oil is a type of oil that contains CBD but does not contain THC which can give you a high efficiency. CBD Oil is from that cannabis flower, however, cannabis now is proven that can help people to relieve pains or lessen seizure attacks. I have read many articles suggesting that cannabis has a very potent effect when it comes with pain and inflammation like this strain on

Awareness and cleaning are two major cause.
Few preventions are
Awareness of risk – find out whether you're at risk of getting malaria. Aware of the places you are traveling. Avoid dirty or mud-filled areas.
Bite prevention – avoid mosquito bites by using insect repellent, covering your arms and legs, and using a mosquito net. Use mosquito coils while u sleep.
Diagnosis – seek immediate medical advice if you have malaria symptoms, including up to a year after you return from travelling.
