Malaria in South Africa - the past, the present and selected implications for the future


South African Medical Journal 86(1): 83-89
Malaria in South Africa - the past, the present and selected implications for the future
This paper outlines a brief historical perspective on malaria and its control in South Africa. Drug resistance and vector control using DDT are some of the major factors facing malaria control that have motivated the South African Medical Research Council's research initiative, which includes vector and parasite research, the use of geographical information systems and the epidemiology of the disease, with a view to sustaining control into the future.
