Abstract

CHAVES, Kátia Maria et al. Malaria in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, 1980-1992. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1995, vol.11, n.4, pp. 621-623. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1995000400010.

Epidemiological analysis of malaria in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil, shows the need for permanent reporting of the endemic-related data in order to maintain clinical suspicion of the infection in any febrile patient. Moreover, it increases the possibility of early aetiological diagnosis. Such reporting aims at improving performance of the local health system. It is important to maintain a well-organized malaria epidemiological surveillance system even in non-endemic areas.

Keywords : Malaria; Plasmodium sp.; Epidemiology; Malaria Control.
