Malaria Control in War Areas field bulletin: February, 1945.
  • Description:
    On cover: Malaria investigations at the Emory University Field Station.

    Investigations at the Emory University Field Station are a cooperative endeavor of Emory University, the Georgia Department of Public Health, the U. S. Geological Survey and the U. S. Public Health Service. This program is unique in that an attempt is made to deal intensively with practically every phase of naturally occurring malaria. In consideration of the implications of this work in the overall malaria picture and of the future activities related to the Extended Malaria COntrol Program, it seems advisable to present briefly an illustrated account of the program for the information of Malaria COntrol in War Areas personnel. The Emory University Field Station for malaria research was established in Baker County near Newton, Georgia in 1939. The primary objective of this undertaking is to study the natural occurrence of malaria for the purpose of ·accumulating data on the natural history of the disease. Need for comprehensive information on the relation of natural phenomena and biology of the insect vectors to malaria morbidity has been felt by malariologists for a long time. But little attention has been given to these problems, investigations of malaria usually being confined to the laboratory or clinical phases and conducted in places removed from the field. Field information on malariology has been obtained only from 'periodic surveys or fragmentary data assembled from various places at different times. The Emory Field Station was intended to partially satisfy the need for continuous data and for facilities to investigate malaria problems which could not be handled under laboratory or clinical conditions.
