Malaria is an infection caused by protozoan parasites called Plasmodium. There are 5 different types of Plasmodium species, P.Malariae, P.Vivax, P.Flaciparum, P.Knowlesi and P.Ovale.

Malaria is spread by female mosquitos, which carry the infectious parasites in their salivary glands, when they bite a person the infection is passed into the bloodstream. Generally these mosquitos bite at night.
