Abstract:

Malaria a dreadful disease which if not treated can become fatal by interrupting the blood supply to vital organs of the human body. Malaria can be controlled by diagnosing it early and treating it promptly. People have different attitude towards the disease as well as the people suffering from it. One of the ways to document the attitude is to record the statements made by the people about the disease. When recording statements, it should be ensured that people generate statements only if they have either suffered from the disease or have a fair idea about the disease.
