A number of emerging pathogens have been known to cross-transmit between humans and nonhuman hosts. Wild primate populations have the potential to serve as origins and reservoirs of certain human pathogens, ranging from virus to helminths ().More than 26 species of Plasmodium circulate among primate populations ().Several of the simian malaria species are closely related to the human ones, Cited by: In Brazil simian malaria is widely spread, being frequent in the Amazon region (10% of primates infected) and even more in the forested coastal mountains of the Southeastern and Southern regions.   The first account of a NHP malaria parasite was recorded by Laveran () in an orangutan, Pongo species Plasmodium pitheci was described a few years later, along with Plasmodium inui and Plasmodium cynomolgi, that infect sympatric monkey species, Macaca fascicularis and Macaca nemestrina, in ery of primate malarias continued as .

In addition to the four classic human species of malaria, there are more than 20 species of malaria parasites that naturally infect non-human primates. It was thought that natural infections of simian malaria in humans were rare and not of public health importance until recent reports from Asia have suggested that P. knowlesi, a simian malaria. The Primate Malarias George Robert Coatney, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (U.S.) U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, - Malaria - pages. Malaria, one of the major public health problems in the world, is a mosquito-borne disease caused by parasites of the genus Plasmodium that affects mammals, reptiles and birds []. Plasmodium species causing infection of non-human primates are of great interest because they may be naturally or accidentally transmitted to humans [].In Brazil, a country that holds the largest species. In the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS)1, malaria is still a substantial public health problem, especially along international borders and forested areas, adversely putting populations such as migrants, refugees, and forest workers most at , there were , malaria cases and deaths in the GMS, with close to million people living in risk areas [].

In Brazil simian malaria is widely spread, being frequent in the Amazon region (10% of primates infected) and even more in the forested coastal mountains of the Southeastern and Southern regions (35% and 18% infected, respectively), but absent in the semi-arid Northeast. The first recognized case of naturally acquired simian malaria was a case of P. knowlesi infection in an employee of the U.S. Army who had returned home from an assignment in Southeast Asia. plasmodial infection of monkeys and apes, as with human malaria, transmitted chiefly by anopheline mosquitoes; several Plasmodium species are responsible, with Southeast Asia and Africa being the apparent centers of evolution; among the 20 plasmodial agents described from nonhuman primates, some resemble and induce a malarial infection similar to those caused by the four species of . Simian Malaria in a U.S. Traveler New York, Four species of intraerythrocytic protozoa of the genus Plasmodium (P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, and P. malariae) are known to cause malaria in r, recent reports from Asia suggest the possibility that a fifth malaria species, Plasmodium knowlesi, is emerging as an important zoonotic human pathogen.
