Malaria and proximity to irrigation projects: a parasitaemia prevalence study from Sri Lanka


Mosquito Borne Diseases Bulletin 11(4): 112-121
Malaria and proximity to irrigation projects: a parasitaemia prevalence study from Sri Lanka
One newly settled village and one ancient village within 2 km of an irrigation project in the Hambantota district of Sri Lanka, and two corresponding villages at least 15 km away, were selected. Capillary blood samples in the form of thick and thin films were taken from 1771 of the 1874 inhabitants of the four villages. Throughout the four villages, 4% of inhabitants had malaria parasitaemia due to Plasmodium vivax or Plasmodium falciparum.
