Malaria is a life-threatening parasitic disease caused by the bite of a female Anopheles mosquito. As per the World Health Malaria Report 2017 of the World Health Organization (WHO), malaria is a febrile disease, and in most malaria-endemic countries the disease is often suspected in children (or older patients) with fevers who seek treatment at health facilities. The WHO recommendation is that such patients are first tested for malaria and if positive, treated appropriately by a trained health worker. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of malaria patients are one of the most effective interventions to control malaria.
Hospital Services at the Secondary level play a vital and complementary role to primary health care in Punjab. The Government sector is engaged both in preventive and curative aspects of health care through Punjab Health Systems Corporation (PHSC). The Department of Health and Family Welfare is making efforts to control and prevent malaria disease under ‘The National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP), Government of India.
