To understand the evolution of drug-resistant forms of malaria in time and in space, we carried out an analysis of the results of a series of passive and active surveys conducted in Burkina Faso between 1982 and 1991.
A total of 607 tests for resistance to chloroquine and mesoquine were carried out in vitro and 3,679 tests for resistance to chloroquine, quinine, and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine were performed in vivo.
The surveys principally involved the two main cities of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso.
However, another 10 locations representing the three different zones of malaria transmission were also studied.
