The latest WHO report showed that the number of malaria cases climbed to 219 million last year, two million higher than last year. The global efforts to fight malaria have hit a plateau and the most significant underlying reason is international funding has declined. Malaria, which is spread to people through the bites of infected female mosquitoes, occurs in 91 countries but about 90% of the cases and deaths are in sub-Saharan Africa. The disease killed 4,35,000 people last year, the majority of them children under five in Africa. AI-backed technology has revolutionized malaria detection in some regions of Africa and the future impact of such work can be revolutionary. The malaria Cell Image Data-set is taken from the official NIH Website NIH data. The aim of the collection of the dataset was to reduce the burden for microscopists in resource-constrained regions and improve diagnostic accuracy using an AI-based algorithm to detect and segment the red blood cells. The goal of this work is to show that the state of the art accuracy can be obtained even by using 2 layer convolution network and show a new baseline in Malaria detection efforts using AI.
