Data from the Canadian Malaria Network provide insight into the characteristics of imported severe and complicated malaria infections in Canada.
To gain insight into policy formulation we have compiled epidemiologic data from five countries with different policies involving either deferral (the USA and Canada) or selective testing (France, England and Australia). The greatest risk is from semi-immune former residents of endemic areas but the greatest impact on sufficiency (donor loss) is from low-risk short-term travel.
We describe the epidemiology of malaria diagnosed at a tertiary care pediatric center in the multicultural city of Toronto.
To identify geographic and individual determinants of malaria incidence in Ontario, Canada, we conducted a descriptive spatial analysis.
Our study clearly shows that VFR children should be a primary target group for pre-travel preventive measures.
