Hey Bob, how can I protect myself from Malaria?
There are many ways that you can protect yourself from variety from diseases.
For example, our skin acts like a barrier to foreign bodies and pathogens.
Your body has a range of defense systems that are part of the innate immune system ( a non-specific defense system which stops all pathogens). These include skin, tears, stomach acid, blood clot, mucus, cilia, coughing, sneezing and your saliva.
But these pathogens can still get into the body through your: mouth, eyes, ears, skin, cuts/bites, and through your genitals.
In Africa, there are various ways that pathogens can spread like through: air, direct contact, contaminated food and drink, breaks in skin and vectors (animals that carry diseases).
