Réceptivité de la Tunisie au paludisme après son éradication: analyse de la situation pour une adéquation de la surveillance

Abstract : In Tunisia, there has been no local transmission of malaria since 1979. Although the disease has been eradicated, its re-emergence is not considered impossible. An epidemiological evaluation has been conducted in order to evaluate the current level of receptivity. A. labranchiae and A. sergenti, the former vectors of malaria in the country, are still present and the anopheline population in the country is increasing following the building of dams and manmade lakes. It is hoped that Tunisian vectors are refractory to sub-Saharan strains of malaria parasites. According to the data collected regarding malaria history, climate, geography and socio-economic development, we assume that the receptivity level of the country is low and the risk of re-emergence of local foci is small.
