The Ministry of Health provided more than 300,000 pedestrians incorporated with permanent insecticides to tackle malaria in the Amazon Region. The region concentrates 80% of the registered cases of disease in the country. In total, 34 Acre, Amazonas, Amapá, Pará, Rondônia and Roraima boroughs will accept the muscles and they must attend 364,500 people. Muschers will also receive nine Special Native Areas (DSEI). The competitors cost $ 4 million. From January to September this year, he registered 144 thousand cases of malaria in Brazil. In the country, there were only 194,000 cases in 2017.
According to the program co-ordinator, Peterka Cases, the act is ancillary "because the main strategy is the diagnosis and early treatment, which aims to avoid deaths and severity the disease, as well as reducing the plasmodium burden that cyclists in the territory, since then the only reservoir of the agent that causes malaria is the human. " The aim of the control is to reduce the density of mosquitoes that have been plasmodium-infected, in areas where transfer is still operational. In addition to the traditional techniques used, such as Internal Residual Injection and Spatial Thermo-Vacuum, the National Malaria Control Program recommends the use of mosquito-malaria networks with insecticide incineration in priority areas.
In 2011 and 2012, more than 1 million pedestrians were distributed in the Amazon region. As an effective strategy for the prevention and control of malaria, the Ministry of Health adopted this strategy with the aim of making the acquisitions and annual distribution of this input. In order to intensify action to combat and control the disease, R $ 11.9 million was transferred in 2016 to nine states located in the Amazon region, for the acquisition of equipment and vehicles and distribution to priority boroughs, to start restructuring local prevention and malaria control action.
