Study Reveals Malaria Connection

Gabaldon decided to deal with the post of Medical Officer of Health of Apure state, where a countryman of his charge to the then Governor Dr. Francisco J. Parra interceded to facilitate such an appointment. In the eponymous half, especially in San Fernando, he realized that not everything they learned abroad with regard to malaria was applicable to the tropical environment by differences in weather conditions. Foreign schemes could not adapt fully to the country, had to invent methods, use the right time of year, malaria engineering works were not feasible by the economic cost, extent and topographical features of the Venezuelan plains and torrential the rains made it impossible to focus actions with insecticides known to attack the breeding of mosquitoes. Berti says: The area was warm.

The tropical zone was different. There was mild malaria caused by Plasmodium vivax (benign tertiary fever). Here is severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum (malignant tertian fever, pernicious or “economic”). There transmitted by a weak vector Anopheles maculipennis. Here Anpheles darling, powerful and fierce.

Beyond the transmission interrupted by the winter cold. Here the streaming throughout the year. There, smiling and restricted the countryside, here the immensity of the plain unlimited. In short, there was a malaria health problems. Here was a giant (1987, 27). Ff Being in touch with the reality facing the country realized that malaria is more knowledge required to fight with the best action the great public health problem that afflicted the nation.

John Hopkins University temporarily passes Rockefeller Institute in New York in studies on malaria in monkeys. In the meantime, Venezuela accused the painful end of a dictatorship, Juan Vicente Gomez died in his bed in December 1935, “Gomez’s dictatorship is certainly an era of history in which there is social disruption and moral deformation in the generations who had to live together “(Moron, G, S / F, 467). In material, oil changes introduced in the economic structure of the country, the country moves toward a model agricultural mineral extraction by oil revenues that strengthen state finances that open possibilities for public investment in programs of economic and social development, especially in the health field. Gomez’s successor, General Eleazar Lopez Contreras aroused new expectations and allowed some political opening, which meant the return of many Venezuelans who were in exile, and others who were prisoners were released. Arnoldo Gabaldon’s father had been a political prisoner of dictator Gomez, Arnoldo reserve and discretion always kept to this and was careful to express their political views publicly.
