It contains a disease profile of malaria and descriptions of where in the Tennessee Valley conditions were favorable to malaria. The publication also describes malaria control activities, including the treatment of land with larvicides like Paris Green, the use of netting to create a barrier between man and mosquito, the improvement of drainage systems, and the cleaning of shorelines. The authors of this book ask for continued support and funding for malaria control activities in the Tennessee Valley.
