World Mosquito Day Messages: In addition to just annoying summer insects, mosquitoes are also responsible for spreading malaria, a disease that kills more than half a million people each year. When Ronald Ross discovered in 1897 that mosquitoes spread malaria, he revolutionized our understanding of the disease and raised awareness about malaria prevention.
Today, the best way to prevent disease is to avoid the bite of an infected mosquito. Insecticide-treated nets, preventive treatment for pregnant women and children, and spraying of internal residues are all ways to reduce infection, but mosquito outbreaks in difficult areas such as sub-Saharan Africa pose a challenge to eradication measures.
HISTORY OF WORLD MOSQUITO DAY
Mosquitoes, those tiny vampires, are responsible for spreading deadly diseases, such as malaria. With no vaccine currently available, malaria – an ancient disease that has plagued mankind since the dawn of agriculture and modern civilization – remains a deadly threat to people around the world. Caused by the Plasmodium parasite, malaria is seen in historical texts dating back to the first millennium BC. In fact, the first signs of the malaria parasite have finally been found in mosquitoes more than 30 million years old!
Malaria affects every continent except Antarctica and remains a widespread problem in some parts of the world, including sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean. More than 200 million people are still infected with malaria each year. In 2010, 90% of malaria deaths occurred in Africa. The World Health Organization has expressed concern about drug-resistant malaria, which could hamper efforts to reduce the spread of the disease.
World Mosquito Day honors the date when Sir Ronald Ross, a British Army surgeon serving in India, proved that mosquitoes transmit malaria by detecting pigmented malaria parasites in mosquitoes fed to an infected patient. This discovery has revolutionized our knowledge of the disease and led to new preventive measures. Ross won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1902.
Ross then and there declared the first World Mosquito Day, to make the world aware of the link between mosquitoes and malaria. Although an improved understanding of the disease has led to more innovative preventive measures and medical treatment, a malaria vaccine remains elusive.
