Highland Malaria

As global heat levels rise, malaria is becoming increasingly prevalent and is gaining a stronger foothold in various populations. The risk of highland malaria is an exciting field of study. Highland malaria is a very unique form of malaria, as it occurs in high altitudes and is caused by a different species of plasmodium than the one found in other areas. This form of malaria is usually not fatal, but it can cause severe symptoms such as fever, chills, and headaches. While it is still relatively rare, the risk of highland malaria is increasing due to climate change and human activities. Changes in temperature, land use, and travel patterns can all increase the risk of highland malaria in certain areas. Research on highland malaria is important to understand its transmission and the best ways to prevent and treat the disease. With continued research, we can hopefully reduce the risk of highland malaria and protect populations from its effects. Check out this informational video:
