Asia is the second worst affected continent after Africa in terms of malaria deaths, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Globally, the disease claims the lives of more than half a million people each year.
Malaria is caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through mosquito bites. It is preventable and curable.
World Malaria Day is observed on 25 April each year to put a spotlight on the disease and the efforts that are being made to eliminate it.
