The Malaria Atlas Project (MAP)


The Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) is a non-profit project which brings together researchers based around the world with expertise in a wide range of disciplines from public health to mathematics, geography and epidemiology. MAP aims to generate new and innovative methods of mapping malaria risk and to produce a comprehensive range of maps and estimates that will support effective planning of malaria control at national and international scales.

The MAP team have assembled a unique spatial database on linked information based on medical intelligence, satellite-derived climate data to constrain the limits of malaria transmission and the largest ever archive of community-based estimates of parasite prevalence. These data have been assembled and analysed by a team of geographers, statisticians, epidemiologists, biologists and public health specialists.
