Description

Order code: SP 512

Malaria and other vector-borne diseases pose a menace to the health of a large portion of the population in developing countries. Their prompt and accurate diagnosis is imperative for both clinical management of cases and epidemiologic tracking. Since 1960, PAHO has been publishing periodic updates of a manual for the microscopic diagnosis of malaria. The present text answers the demand for a manual that brings together the most current knowledge about the biology of plasmodia, their behavior in the anopheline vectors, and human response to infection. An expanded, up-to-date, and easy-to-use diagnostic tool, this publication is intended for use by specialized malaria prevention and control programs as well as general health services to help ensure the uniform application of diagnostic techniques.
