Malaria Atlas Project
The Malaria Atlas Project or abbreviated as MAP is a non-profit project funded for five years by the Wellcome Trust, UK. MAP is a joint project between the Malaria Public Health & Epidemiology Group, Centre for Geographic Medicine, Kenya and the Spatial Ecology & Epidemiology Group, University of Oxford, UK.
Additional recommended knowledge
The main objective of this project is to develop a detailed model of the spatial limits of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax malaria at a global scale and its endemicity within this range. The last attempt to map malaria risks worldwide was in the 1960s. For many areas of the world this, unfortunately, still represents the best information on malaria risk. The project aims to map, model and project populations at risk of malaria to provide a more contemporary and robust means to assess current and future malaria disease burden.
MAP intends to release in the public-domain all data collected during the project for which permission to disseminate has been granted. The first full release of data is scheduled for June 2009.
