BROCHERO, Helena  e  QUINONES, Martha L.. Challenges of the medical entomology for the surveillance in public health in Colombia : reflections on the state of malaria. Biomédica [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.18-24. ISSN 0120-4157.

The relevance of the medical entomology was considered with respect to current framework of malaria control programs in Colombia. A responsibility is indicated for balancing control efforts along with providing information on the malaria vectors. This knowledge must be acquired in order to focus the related activities that are required. The malaria control program must be based on results of local entomological surveillance, and the data must be in a form to give practical answers to questions regarding the control program. Difficulties in undertaking the required studies are described, particularly regarding the taxonomic identification of Colombian Anopheles in Colombia and which of these can be incriminated as malaria vectors.

Palavras-chave : entomology; population surveillance; malaria [prevention & control]; Anopheles; public health.
