Malaria can be prevented in different ways. Poor economical countries use what is known as bed nets that are well treated with insecticide as this means of prevention is very cheap. Drugs is another way of preventing this disease, but drugs are not cheap and researchers discovered that drugs from the quinine family is a good bet for the treatment of malaria.For personal prevention, individuals are advice to seek medication when symptoms are traceable and avoid vulnerable areas. Always keep the environment clean and dispose waste at the right time.
