Abstract

MAHARAJ, R et al. Epidemiology of malaria in South Africa: From control to elimination. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.10, pp. 779-783. ISSN 2078-5135.

Locally specific epidemiological understanding is pivotal to the success of malaria elimination in South Africa. Here, we focus on how the host, vector, parasite and environment and their interactions have influenced malaria incidence in South Africa between 1995 and 2012. Broad environmental considerations are necessary, including the physical (temperature and humidity), social (migration patterns), economic (quality of housing stock) and political (regional collaboration).
