MOLINA, Adriana María. SISTEMAS DE INFORMACIÓN GEOGRÁFICA PARA EL ANÁLISIS DE LA DISTRIBUCIÓN ESPACIAL DE LA MALARIA EN COLOMBIA. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2008, n.9, pp.91-111. ISSN 1794-1237.

Malaria is a preventable disease that persists as one of Colombia´s major public health problems. An efficient allocation of resources for malaria control requires the identification of endemic zones and their simultaneous and systematic characterization in several aspects. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology was used to bring together data from different sources for a recent period and develop various spatial analyses in the five endemic zones identified. Information was organized in synthesis cards that allow general view of each endemic zone, making it easier to have a general idea about the conditions of vulnerability of population at risk, incidence for each infection type, reported vector species and predominant climatic characteristics. Although results presented constitute a fixed view of the analyzed period, the spatial database developed permits the updating of data in order to track the disease that permits an opportune evaluation of the effectiveness of incidence reduction strategies.
