Malaria and its control in the Peoples's Republic of China.
Malaria is one of the major parasitic diseases in China.
During the past 40 years, large scale malaria control activities were conducted in the country relying on primary health care nets and community participation.
The control of malaria was implemented according to the principles of adopting integrated measures and repeated practices which are characterized by time- and locality-oriented approaches.
As a result, remarkable success has been achieved.
By the end of 1990, there were 117,000 malaria cases in China, with a morbidity of 0.0106%, which dropped by 95% in comparison with that in the 1950s.
