Malaria Control in War Areas, 1944-45.
  • Description:
    The Malaria Control in War Areas program, established in March 1942, is a joint undertaking by the U. S. Public Health Service and State Health Departments. The original objective was to reduce the hazard of malaria transmission in extra-cantonment military and essential war industry areas by supplementing the control measures of military authorities within the reservation. Concentration of malaria carriers in military hospital and prisoner-of war camps created the necessity for protecting the civilian population from infections which could originate in these military areas. Return of malaria carriers from overseas caused further expansion of control measures to non-military zones Critical appraisal of areas in which malaria transmission may occur is based on medical, engineering, and entomological investigations. In malarious areas operations are directed against the insect vectors of the disease. In this way coordinated forces offset the danger of an increase in malaria--the disease which has earned the reputation of being the worst of human scourges.
