  • Description:
    The Malaria Control in War Areas program, as established in March, 1942, is a joint undertaking by the U. S. Public Health Service and State Health Departments designed to reduce the hazard of malaria transmission in extra-cantonment zones of military areas and around essential war industries. It complements similar activities of military authorities with in reservation limits. Operations are directed against the malaria mosquito. Malarious areas are determined by epidemiologists, vectors are surveyed and their breeding areas located by entomologists, and control methods are decided upon by engineers. This professional team is served by a group of administrators. The result is a coordinated attack against malaria, the number one disease of World War II.

    MCWA administrative offices have been established in 1 9 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Territory of Hawaii. In 22 additional states programs were operated in the vicinity of prisoner-of-war camps and Army and Navy general hospitals. In these areas, the problem is handled by mobile units.
