The objective of the current study was to determine the seasonal variation of malaria prevalence of the tribal and district areas among the selected people of Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh. The seasonal variation of surveillance indices like Monthly Parasite Index (MPI), Slide Positivity Rate (SPR), Slide vivax Rate (SvR), Slide falciparum Rate (SfR) and Plasmodium falciparum proportion (Pf%) of Srikakulam was described. The current study investigation represents that the surveillance of malaria infection was found to be highest during the dry season when compared with wet season. The assessment of the climatic parameters represents the current malaria transmission in India which was based on the present endemic nature of malaria in India, and likely to be extent of malarial activity in the future due to climate change.
