Malaria is the most important of the parasitic diseases of humans. As of the early 1990's it affected 103 endemic countries with a population of over 2.5 billion people and caused between 1 and 3 million deaths per year. It has been eradicated from North America, Europe, parts of the Middle East, and Russia; however, despite enormous control efforts, a resurgence of the disease took place in many parts of the tropics. It occurs throughout most of the tropical regions of the world. A significant number of cases occurs in the Amazon basin, where P. falciparum predominates. P. falciparum also predominates in sub-Saharan Africa, New Guinea, and Haiti. P. vivax is more common in Central America and the Indian subcontinent. P. malariae is found in most areas but is less common. P. ovale infection is relatively unusual outside Africa. 2b1af7f3a8
