Malaria in Infancy
To the epidemiologist malaria in the infant is of two-fold interest. In highly "malarious" areas it is the first attacks, occurring during the early years of life, which build up a relative immunity at the cost of considerable death and disability. Secondly, the rate of infection in the infant serves as a useful yardstick of transmission and is widely used as a measure of the success of control. The effects of malaria are extremely variable and are often more obvious in the areas where transmission is less intense.
