Malaria infestation in pregnancy is a global health concern because half of the worldâs population is at risk of malaria, with majority of them in Africa, where it is a major public health concern and cause of death. Falciparum malaria is an important cause of maternal, perinatal and neonatal morbidity and mortality in high transmission settings in sub-Saharan Africa. This is because besides the number of people at risk in sub-Saharan Africa, malaria in pregnancy commonly coexist with conditions that alter the acquired maternal partial immunity against malaria infestation, like haemoglobimopathies, Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS), poverty and poor nutrition with micronutrient imbalances, pre-existing anaemia, Tuberculosis, diarrhoeal diseases, septicaemia, and Tropical Splenomegaly Syndrome (TSS), which exacerbate the impact of pregnancy-associated malaria.
