Show the malaria parasite's life cycle in a clear way

Every year more than 300 million people catch malaria and one million people die from it. It has devastating consequences for a large proportion of the human population. There is also a connection with sickle cell disease.

Malaria is caused by the unicellular Plasmodium parasite that is spread by mosquitos. Plasmodium has a complex life cycle involving human and mosquito hosts. Our innovative model shows how this life cycle happens in a clear way. It also shows how sickle cell disease has played a role in protecting carriers from malaria in many parts of the world.

It covers: merozoite, sporozoite, oocysts, gametocytes and what happens during each step of the Plasmodium life cycle.

Takes just 30 minutes. Dimensions: red blood cell 8cm/3in x 8cm/3in
