Pathological Landscape

Epidemiology and the Medical Geography of Malaria in Palestine

(p.63) Chapter Two Pathological Landscape
Healing the Land and the Nation
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the historical epidemiology and medical geography of malaria in Palestine. It explains that the country possessed topographical and climatological features that contributed to the disease's transmission. The chapter discusses disease etiology and the different rate of infection and mortality between the Jewish and Palestinian communities. It also argues that the interaction of humans and the environment in constructing and reconstructing the landscape of Palestine certainly effected change but did not rid the country of the disease entirely.

Keywords:   malaria, historical epidemiology, medical geography, Palestine, disease transmission, disease etiology, Jewish community, Palestinian community
