Effects of Political Instability in Venezuela on Malaria Resurgence at Ecuador–Peru Border, 2018 PDF Version[PDF – 500 KB – 3 pages]

Mass migration from Venezuela has increased malaria resurgence risk across South America. During 2018, migrants from Venezuela constituted 96% of imported malaria cases along the Ecuador–Peru border. Plasmodium vivax predominated (96%). Autochthonous malaria cases emerged in areas previously malaria-free. Heightened malaria control and a response to this humanitarian crisis are imperative.
