INTRODUCTION Malaria in recent years has been reported as far north as the Dvina River near Archangel in the USSR (65°) and as far south as Córdoba in Argentina (32°). Intense endemicity is still found in some areas of the Americas between 15°N. and 15°S., in Europe south of 45°N., in Asia south of 30°N., in Indonesia and the Philippines, Southwest Pacific (west of 180° and north of 20°S.) and Africa, north of 25°N. In the central and south Pacific, such islands as the Galapagos, Marquesas, Fiji, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Marshalls and Carolines, are entirely without anopheline mosquitoes and consequently are nonmalarious. During World War II appeared on Guam but so far no indigenous malaria has been reported.
