Basic Information

Overview

Malaria is a reportable disease in the U.S. and its territories. Health-care providers are required to report all cases of laboratory-confirmed malaria occurring in the U.S. and its territories to their local or state health department. Reports including epidemiological and clinical information on malaria cases diagnosed in the United States are transmitted to CDC through the NMSS. Reports are published on Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) see http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/indss_2016.html
