Atlas of Malaria-Eliminating Countries

By: UCSF Global Health Group in partnership with the Malaria Atlas Project

In collaboration with the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) and with funding from the ExxonMobil Foundation, the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco has developed a first-of-its kind Atlas of Malaria-Eliminating Countries. The Atlas displays the geographic distribution of malaria today in those 36 countries that are closest to eliminating the disease — clearly outlining how much malaria remains, and where it is concentrated. Key factors for malaria elimination are visually displayed through maps that link the risk of malaria transmission with climate data, estimate the range of the dominant malaria-carrying mosquito species, and display locations of human populations at risk of malaria. Serving as a tool to aid program managers, policy makers, and funders alike, the Atlas aims to increase global and regional awareness of the malaria situation in those countries eliminating the disease, facilitate the production of more-detailed maps in the future, and make the case for increased resources to achieve countries’ goals of becoming malaria-free.

Note: Due to the numerous maps in the Atlas, the total file size is extremely large. It is highly recommended that you download this Atlas in sections.

Atlas of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network

By: UCSF Global Health Group in partnership with the Malaria Atlas Project

Bringing further attention to the distribution of malaria across the Asia Pacific region, the Atlas of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network spotlights the 11 Country Partners of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN). In partnership with the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) and with funding from Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the ExxonMobil Foundation, the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco developed the APMEN Atlas to raise awareness of those countries in the Asia Pacific region that are closest to eliminating the disease. Viewed together, the maps call particular attention to the growing importance of P. vivax and to the challenge of preventing malaria transmission along border areas where there is a constant threat of importation of malaria from neighboring endemic countries.

The Lancet Series on Malaria Elimination

With leadership from the Malaria Elimination Group and the UCSF Global Health Group, The Lancet published a special series on malaria elimination in November 2010 to address the challenges that confront malaria-eliminating countries today. This groundbreaking Series examines the technical, operational, and financial aspects of elimination and includes a global call to action that details the priorities for malaria elimination in the coming decade to ensure continued momentum.
