Summary and Conclusions

  • 1.  A malaria reconnaissance of the State of Veracruz was conducted during the years 1944–1946, inclusive. The zone as a whole can be characterized as one of moderate malarial endemicity.
  • 2.  Evidence is presented to indicate that the zones most favorable for malaria transmission are those below an altitude of 1,000 meters. Falciparum malaria occurs relatively less frequently than vivax malaria with increase in altitude.
  • 3.  Twelve species of anophelines were encountered, of which and are probably the most important in the transmission of malaria. Adequate studies for the determination of the malaria vectors have not been made.
