NOT Open Access | Sparse serological evidence of Plasmodium vivax transmission in the Ouest and Sud-Est departments of Haiti

Given the lack of historical evidence of P. vivax infections on the island of Hispaniola, the sparse serological evidence of antibodies toward P. vivax identified in the current study further support the notion that the transmission of P. vivax malaria might be extremely low or even completely absent in Haiti.
