State of the art

Malaria is an ancient disease of Europe that was historically eliminated from many countries by a mixture of targeted control, habitat modification and improvements in general living standards. Malaria however remains a constant problem on Europe's eastern and southern borders. There have been recent, unexplained changes in the distribution of a number of potential malaria vectors along Europe's eastern borders and the development of trans-Saharan routes that potentially bring both the disease and its vectors closer to her southern borders.
