This paper studies the problem of malaria control in irrigation and non-irrigation areas in Kenya.
Empirical results show that in both areas, households'level of awareness of malaria as a health problem, including its cause, was very high.
However, attempts to trace the direct effects of malaria upon income or upon agricultural production were not statistically important.
This does not imply that malaria has no consequence on household welfare.
It is possible that the model equations were mis-specified-aggregate variables (total family size, total family income) and failure to quantify land in the production relationships may have contributed to these results.
