INTRODUCTION

Malaria was eradicated from most Caribbean countries in the 1960s, Hispaniola being a notable exception (3). Reports of imported malaria are common throughout the region. However, malaria has re-emerged in the past two decades and is endemic in Guyana, Suriname and Belize. In recent years, there have been malaria outbreaks in The Bahamas (4) and Jamaica which required significant effort and resources to control. The paper by Rawlins et al is a timely reminder that the re-emergence of malaria is an ever present threat and that
continued complacency will not go unpunished (5)
