Vector-borne diseases such as malaria cause tremendous public health burden globally. Malaria is endemic in >100 countries and ~40% of the world’s population is at malaria risk. Malaria is a local and focal disease. Besides ecological parameters which influence the disease there are some important local factors such as socioeconomic, socio-cultural and behaviour patterns of the community which play a major role in disease transmission.
