HOCHMAN, Gilberto; MELLO, Maria Teresa Bandeira de  e  SANTOS, Paulo Roberto Elian dos. Malaria in pictures: images from Brazil's Public Health campaigns in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2002, vol.9, suppl., pp.233-273. ISSN 0104-5970.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702002000400011.

The article discusses a set of pictures that illustrate public health activities, practices, and campaigns against malaria in Brazil from 1918 through 1956. Exemplary of certain key moments in this history, the illustrations belong to three archives from the Casa de Oswaldo Cruz/Fundação Oswaldo Cruz collection: Arquivo Belisário Penna, Arquivo Fundação Rockefeller ("Serviço de Malária do Nordeste" series), and Arquivo Rostan Soares. The article links these photographic records to their specific historical-public health contexts and to the campaign models and strategies represented by each archive. It also draws relations with the 20th-century history of the photographic medium itself. It is argued that these images of malaria constitute prime sources in constructing a visual history of the disease in 20th-century Brazil and of the country's public health history.

Palavras-chave : malaria; paludism; photography; public health campaigns; public health.
