The Impact of Malaria Control on Plasmodium falciparum in Africa, 2000-2015

Past Project
A 2015 study by MAP, published in Nature, has quantified the attributable effect of malaria disease control efforts in Africa showing that Plasmodium falciparum infection prevalence in endemic Africa halved and the incidence of clinical disease fell by 40% between 2000 and 2015. Read More

The geography of Plasmodium knowlesi malaria

Current Project
The Plasmodium knowlesi parasite, found in wild monkey populations, is a potentially serious public health concern yet almost nothing is known about its geographical extent. Read More

Modelling mosquito populations

Current Project
Ongoing work is modelling the geographical distributions of key sibling species in Africa and Asia, and quantifying the mosquito behaviours that have the potential to impact malaria control measures. Read More
