At Hudson, we are advocates for public health programs which remove the threat to life and human well being. Malaria has one of the longest histories of causing pain, suffering and death to millions of people in many parts of the world. Malaria is transmitted from the mosquito to humans when the mosquito seeks a blood meal through a bite. Read our Malaria Control Initiatives Booklet for more info.
In our advocacy we recognize that Malaria has been eradicated in many parts of the world. Many island nations have eliminated Malaria from their territory. Those with a follow thru program swiftly isolate any person who later comes down with the disease and they also do selective spraying to get rid of the carrier.
