This paper intends to understand the socio-ecologic factors responsible for increased vulnerability to malaria in six counties of Kenya. Available official information indicates that over the years the six counties of Busia, Siaya, Tharaka Nithi, Homa Bay, Kisumu and Migori had the highest number of malaria cases – double the national average. It is therefore necessary to have a quick collection of preliminary information to understand this occurrence. Using desk top research, this paper assembles information that may shed light on this phenomenon.
