dc.description.abstract When considering chemoprophylaxis ODC has to weigh up the advantages and disadvantages, both to the individual child and to that same child as part of the community at large. One also has to think about the large role that immunity plays in the individual's ability to survive and thrive in a malarious environment. In Ghana malaria is endemic in most rural areas, that is 95% of children and adults over the age of 1 year have high levels of antibodies against malaria. In Accra however, in 1978, a survey showed that 40% of urban children and 7% of urban adults had no detectable antibody' against P. falciparum. This difference was related to use of chloroquine. en_US
