Malaria control or malaria eradication programs are found in most malarious countries. Depending on the state of the program, its administrative structure and function may vary. Natural disasters, such as hurricanes and floods, may affect the breeding sites of anopheline mosquitoes. In areas where malaria is endemic, the likelihood of an increase in malaria cases two or more months after the disaster must be considered and appropriate action taken.
