    • Description:
      The U.S. was once a malaria-endemic country, but in 1951, malaria was declared eliminated here. Now approximately 1,500 malaria cases and five deaths are reported in the United States annually, mostly in returned travelers.

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) helps protect the health of Americans who travel to countries with malaria transmission and also helps prevent malaria’s reintroduction in this country by

      • Monitoring the frequency and distribution of malaria cases in U.S. residents and visitors.

      • Providing information to health-care providers and the public about antimalarial drugs and other measures to protect them from malaria infection when traveling abroad.

      • Offering clinical advice and epidemiologic assistance on the treatment, control, and prevention of malaria.

      • Providing information to blood collection centers about where malaria occurs so donors can be appropriately screened.

      • Investigating local outbreaks of malaria.

      • Assessing global antimalarial drug resistance through surveillance of U.S. malaria cases.
