Tuberculosis, Hepatitis and Malaria Prevention and Control

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection caused by a bacterium called mycobacterium tuberculosis which spread through the lymph nodes and blood stream to any organ in your body. It is most commonly found in the lungs which attack the lungs and it can also attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine and brain. Hepatitis infection is caused by the inflammation of the liver and characterized by the presence of inflammatory cells in the tissue of the organ. Hepatitis may occur with limited or no symptoms but often leads to jaundice, poor appetite and malaise. Hepatitis is acute when it lasts less than six months and chronic when it persists longer. Malaria is a mosquito borne infection affecting humans and other animals caused by parasitic protozoans (a group of single celled microorganisms) belonging to the plasmodium type. Malaria symptoms typically include fever, fatigue, vomiting and headaches which can be observed in 10-15 after being bitten by mosquito. In severe cases it can cause yellow skin, seizures, comaor and even death.

Tuberculosis is a deadly infection caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis and it is transmitted through air via droplets through cough and sneeze. Most of the infections do not have symptoms and this condition is called as latent tuberculosis which should be treated immediately otherwise it leads to death. Tuberculosis mainly affects lungs and other parts of the body as well. Hepatitis infection  is caused by the inflammation of the liver leading to the presence of inflammatory cells in the tissue of the organ. Hepatitis may or may not show the symptoms leading to jaundice (a yellow discoloration of the skin and mucous membrane), conjunctiva, poor appetite and malaise. Hepatitis is of two types, acute and chronic. Malaria is a parasitic infection that involves high fevers, shaking chills, flu like symptoms and anaemia. Malaria is caused by a parasite that is passed to humans by the bite of infected anopheles mosquitoes which carry the plasmodium parasite. When this mosquito bites you, the parasite is released into the bloodstream then to liver. Once the parasites enter the body they travel to the liver where they mature. After several days the matured parasites enter the bloodstream and begin to infect red blood cells. Within 48 to 72 hours the parasites inside the red blood cells multiply causing the infected cells to burst open. The parasites continue to infect red blood cells resulting in symptoms that occur in cycles that last two to three days at a time. Malaria is preventable and curable and increased efforts are dramatically reducing the malaria burden in many places.
