During Malaysia’s rapid economic development into becoming a middle income
country in the past several decades, environmental changes resulted in altered
land use patterns because of agricultural practices such as large scale rice,
rubber and oil palm cultivation. The impact of environmental changes brought
about by rice and rubber cultivation affected the breeding habitats of mosquito
vectors which in turn affected the prevalence of two strains of lymphatic
filariasis in different ways. This article discusses how ecological factors
determine the way lymphatic filariasis, scrub typhus and dengue were spread
in Malaysia.
