In brief: No (with caveats)
It depends on how you define "developing country, " since malaria is present in some middle-income countries (e.
g. Brazil). However, for the most part, malaria is present in resource-limited rather than resource-rich countries. If you're concerned about a specific location, you can check the travel section of the cdc website (http://wwwnc.Cdc.Gov/travel/) or just google "malaria map.".
