The Kheda project experience has shown that bio-environmental control of malaria is feasible, cost effective and ecologically sound. It clearly brings out the need to consider health issues at the planning stage of all developments. Bio-environmental control of malaria is suggested as the first line of attack for the control of mosquitoes, malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases. Insecticides may be reserved for short-term use. This will enable judicious and selective use of insecticides in solely epidemic situations. The growing problem of resistance to insecticides in mosquitoes as well as environmental pollution, can then be solved on a long term basis.
