  Abstract  
  Malaria is a major public health problem in Kenya, Africa. In the Lake Victoria region, nearly one third of infant and nearly half of adult deaths are attributed to this vector-borne disease. Malaria contributes to malnutrition of children, complications in pregnancy, and maternal death. The information presented here is the preliminary phase of a malaria intervention project that is based on vector control. The Anopheline mosquito primarily linked to malaria in this region of Kenya is An. gambiae, butAn. christyi, An. pharoensis, and An. pretoriensis were also found.
