En estos municipios de alto riesgo que también se clasifican como de extrema pobreza en el mapa de pobreza del Ecuador, las estadísticas de morbilidad malárica tienen una fuerte carga en la familia pobre donde la niñez y la juventud es afectada por repetidas infecciones maláricas, el bajo peso la madre y el embarazo precoz con las posibilidades negativas de la infección malárica, las coinfecciones de IRAs y EDAs, TBC, con malaria y la amenaza del VIH/SIDA debido a los movimientos poblacionales y migraciones.
