Environmental Determinants of Malaria Incidence

Author(s): Siti Humaira, Nurjazuli, Mursid Raharjo


Malaria is a protozoan infection caused by the genus Plasmodium, with over 150 Plasmodium species infecting mammals. There are 400 Anopheles mosquitoes, but 30-40 species cause malaria. Malaria is a disease with complex transmission dynamics; malaria is also associated with geographic heterogeneity over time. The method used in this research is a literature review with systematic analysis assessed by the suitability of the topic and the desired criteria. It can be concluded that the determinants of malaria are related to the environment, knowledge, activities at night, type of work, and socioeconomics.
