Beside a number of other challenges, addressing population movement causing malaria appears to be of particular importance to the national malaria programme.
The population genetic structure of P. vivax in Central China highlights unstable transmission, with limited barriers to gene flow between the central provinces.
Both P. ovale wallikeri and P. ovale curtisi infections are present in imported malaria cases of China.
This is the first robust clinical evaluation of transfluthrin mosquito coils as a means to reduce malaria and the high degree of infection prevented would indicate they represent a potentially highly effective tool, which could be integrated into larger vector control programmes.
Malaria, dengue fever, and filariasis are three of the most common mosquito-borne diseases worldwide.
The aim of this meta-analysis was to clarify more accurately the association of this polymorphism with malaria risk.
The Multilevel Distributed Lag Non-linear Model (MDLNM) was used to study the temporal lagged correlation between weekly malaria and weekly meteorological factors.
From 2001 to 2011 in Jiangsu Province, there was a consistent increase in the number of malaria cases imported from other countries while the number of locally acquired cases sharply declined.
This study investigated the malaria distribution in China, particularly in provinces with high risks. Spatial and temporal data were assembled for all endemic or historically endemic areas and combined to identify common patterns and to investigate the actual changes in the burden of malaria in the country.
The present data indicate that there is some degree of genetic diversity among P. vivax populations in Anhui province of China.
