Iran with population of more than 72 million people is located in West Asia. It has approximately million square km area of which mountainous regions and arid deserts comprise 50% and 25%, respectively.

The Malaria Control Program started extensively in Bythe program covered 5 million of the total population (18 million).Cited by:malaria eradication programm e (M EP) started in Iran and up to almost interrupted malaria trans- mission in t he north part s of the country.

However, in th e south parts although the. The scientific study of malaria in Iran was started by Latycheve in Later on up tomalaria have been studied by some Iranian and foreign investigators and it was found hyper-endemic in some littoral parts of Caspian Sea in the north and Persian Golf in the south and hypo-or meso-endemic in the central parts of the : GH.H Edrissian.

To ambitiously address malaria, WHO launched the Global Malaria Eradication Program (GMEP) in While the campaign was successful in North America, Europe, and Australia, many high-burden countries lacked the technical assistance, funding, and infrastructure needed to.

Overview. Sincethere has been a 42% reduction in malaria mortality rates globally, and a 49% decline in the WHO African Region. This progress has led many malaria-endemic countries, even those with historically high burdens of malaria, to explore the possibility of accelerating towards elimination.

In the past decade and a half, remarkable progress in malaria control has been achieved with a 37% decline in malaria incidence and 60% reduction in malaria deaths globally [].Almost half of the world’s nations are now malaria free [] and several countries have reduced malaria transmission to levels low enough to allow them to embark on, and in many cases achieve, elimination [].

Sonia Shah, author of The Fever, a book about malaria, says eradication is possible, but that the deadline is ambitious. "The way financing works for global health is you have to use goal. Malaria elimination is the interruption of local transmission (reduction to zero incidence of indigenous cases) of a specified malaria parasite species in a defined geographic area; continued measures are required to prevent re-establishment of transmission.

Malaria eradication is defined as the permanent reduction to zero of the worldwide incidence of malaria infection caused by all species. Vector control is a cornerstone Study of the malaria control and eradication in Iran up to 1971 book malaria control, owing to the lack of reliable vaccines, the emergence of drug resistance, and unaffordable potent antimalarials.

In the recent past, a few countries have achieved malaria elimination by employing existing front-line vector control interventions and active case management.

Malaria is a difficult disease to control largely due to the highly adaptable nature of the vector and parasites involved. While effective tools have been and will continue to be developed to combat malaria, inevitably, over time the parasites and mosquitoes will evolve means to circumvent those tools if used in isolation or used ineffectively.

Following unsuccessful eradication attempts there was a resurgence of malaria towards the end of the 20th century. Renewed control efforts using a range of improved tools, such as long-lasting insecticide-treated bednets and artemisinin-based combination therapies, have more than halved the global burden of disease, but it remains high with deaths and more than million cases in The history of malaria stretches from its prehistoric origin as a zoonotic disease in the primates of Africa through to the 21st century.

A widespread and potentially lethal human infectious disease, at its peak malaria infested every continent, except Antarctica.

Its prevention and treatment have been targeted in science and medicine for hundreds of years. malaria case by origin of infection, i.e.

The World Health Organization carries out a malaria control program on a global scale, focusing on local strengthening of primary health care, early diagnosis of the disease, timely treatment, and disease prevention.

In the ensuing years, CDC oversaw the US national malaria eradication program and provided technical support to activities in the 13 states where malaria was still endemic. (Dr. Justin M. Andrews, director of CDC from towas also director of the Division of Malaria and Hookworm Service of the Georgia Department of Public Health in.

Abstract. Premunition, naturally acquired protective immunity against Plasmodium falciparum, has been described in hyperendemic areas of Africa and Papua New r, its occurrence in Asia is debatable. In order to elucidate this question, a longitudinal study was undertaken in Oo-Do, a malaria endemic village in Myanmar [Burma] in – The outlook for malaria control is grim.

The disease, caused by mosquito-borne parasites, is present in countries and is responsible for over million clinical cases and 1 to 2 million deaths each year.

Over the past two decades, efforts to control malaria have met with less and less success. Introduction. Movement of malaria parasites by human migration to a potential country are likely to make epidemic the disease. Migration or population movement is one of the most important forces in modern-day malaria transmission and distribution in large measure due to global socio situation and transportation (1, 2).Some malarious countries, such as those in West Africa and central Asia are.

eradication of malaria has been in place for the past 50 years. InUrban Malaria Scheme was launched. An Enhanced Malaria Control Project has been launched in. Sudan’s Blue Nile Health Project (), a programme to control malaria and other diseases via mass drug administration had limited success and in.

Inthere were million malaria cases that led todeaths. Of these 67per cent (,) were children under 5 years of age.

This translates into a daily toll of nearly children under age 5. Every two minutes, a child under five dies of malaria. Most of these deaths occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Sincemortality rates among children under 5 have fallen by 39 per cent. (ii) Malaria control by traditional methods, Organization of malaria control by antilarval methods, diagnosis and treatment of eases, health education.

The eradication of smallpox raised hopes that the same could be accomplished for other diseases, with many named as possibilities: polio, mumps, and dracunculiasis (Guinea worm disease), among others.

Malaria has also been considered, and its incidence has been reduced drastically in many countries. More attention is being focused on malaria today than any time since the world's last efforts to achieve eradication over 40 years ago. The global community is now discussing strategies aimed at dramatically reducing malarial disease burden and the eventual eradication of all types of malaria, everywhere.

As a consequence, Plasmodium vivax, which has long been neglected and mistakenly. Iran is considered as one of the malaria endemic countries of the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) and is at risk due to neighboring Afghanistan, Pakistan in the east, and Iraq to the west. Therefore the aim of the present investigation is the evaluation of the trend of malaria distribution during the past decade (–) in Khuzestan province, southwestern Iran.

50 years after a noble but flawed attempt to eradicate malaria in the midth century, the global malaria community is once again seriously considering eradication. Momentum towards eradication has been building for decades, and more than half of the world's countries are now malaria free.

Sincea surge of global progress has occurred, facilitated by the roll-out of new technologies and. June 5, — An indoor residual spray made by combining a type of volcanic glass with water showed effective control of mosquitoes that carry malaria, according to a new study.

Malaria Eradication Program.4 A historical background of malaria in Iran In “Avesta”, the Zoroastrian religious book, the characteristics of a disease that resembled malaria were mentioned (Tab-Larzeh, which means fever and chill) During the Islamic period, the clinical picture of malaria was a familiar entity to famous Iranian physicians.

Child malaria episodes could be reduced by up to 20% if populations living in high-risk areas are given Ivermectin, according to a study published by the Yale School of Public Health.

Varney followed up with a second study, also funded by the VA, in which he compared the performance on a battery of neuropsychological tests of 40 Vietnam veterans, identified as cerebral malaria survivors, to that of 40 Vietnam veterans who were treated for combat injuries but who had never had malaria.

Malaria is caused by infection with protozoan parasites belonging to the genus Plasmodium transmitted by female Anopheles species mosquitoes. Our understanding of the malaria parasites begins in with the discovery of the parasites in the blood of malaria patients by Alphonse Laveran. The sexual stages in the blood were discovered by William MacCallum in birds infected with.
