Malaria pamphlet – 1943

A 4.5 inch by 7 inch brown pamphlet on malaria causes, effects and how to deal with this issue. Malaria was a significant issue for Canadian soldiers in the Mediterranean, for the 48th Highlanders particularly in Sicily at a temporary rest camp near the town of Militello.

Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite. Mosquitoes spread the parasite to people.

Malaria symptoms usually appear within in 7 to 30 days but can take up to one year to develop. Symptoms may include high fevers and shaking chills, flu-like illness. Without treatment, malaria can cause severe illness and death.

The mosquitoes that spread malaria are found in Africa, Central and South America, parts of the Caribbean, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the South Pacific.
