This chapter, which focuses on the creation of a culture of health in Palestine through antimalaria education and propaganda, discusses the success of Zionist antimalaria campaigns in transforming the physical topography of Palestine and describes their attempts do the same for its Jewish inhabitants and their bodies. It suggests that malaria and general hygiene education cannot be disentangled, explaining that the general issues of hygiene and health played a part in malaria prevention because other diseases could complicate a malaria attack.
