World Mosquito Day on 20 August first came into being in 1897 when British doctor Sir Ronald Ross made the historic link that female mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans.

All aboard for Mozzy Air – our fictitious airline that flies to over 100 destinations. It’s brought to life through the interactive infographic below featuring flight paths to countries affected by malaria past and present. It also brings you compelling personal stories and facts from ten countries.

Mozzy Air reminds travellers to get protected before heading overseas and gives you the chance to share your malaria story to help raise awareness to save lives.
