Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To understand the epidemic characteristics, regular pattern and trend of malaria in Shantou City, Guangdong Province.

The historical data of malaria were collected and analyzed by the descriptive epidemiological methods in Shantou City from 1992 to 2012.

RESULTS:

A total of 556 malaria cases were reported in Shantou City from 1992 to 2012, with the annually incidence of 0.056 cases per 10 thousand. After 2003, no secondary cases and local outbreak of malaria occurred. The ratio of male to female was 3.34: 1, and 82.73% of the patients were aged from 15 to 45 years. The peasants (including workers from the village) and factory workers most easily suffered from malaria with a proportion of 39.21% and 18.35%, respectively. Nevertheless there was an exception in some year.
