In brief: Mosquito bite
A bite from an infected anophele mosquito can transmit one of the plasmodia ( malariae, vivax or ovale) that cause malaria in to your blood stream, malaria may also be transmitted from needle sharing from infected drug users, blood transfusion infected by malaria, solid organ transplant from infected donors.

In brief: Also Mother to Baby
Congenital malaria occurs in which the infected mother transmits malaria to the unborn child.
When this occurs there is an increased risk of low birth weight, fetal anemia, premature delivery, and potential for stillbirth.
