We are an international research collaboration that tracks the global fight against malaria.

We combine innovative data and analytics, global collaboration, and local engagement to deliver insights for impactful malaria policy and control.

Who we are

DRIVEN BY IMPACT

We believe that to defeat malaria we need to be able to measure it. We aim to combine the world’s malaria data with cutting-edge analytics so that we can generate the best possible information to help guide the fight against the disease.

Our Work

GLOBAL COLLABORATION

Since its inception in 2006, the MAP collaboration has comprised many scientists working in groups around the world. Today, MAP has a core team based at the Telethon Kids Institute and Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia, and has members in Europe, the United States, Africa and Asia.

TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE

We store the world’s largest malaria database, assembling millions of data elements and developing innovative analytical approaches to making sense of complex malaria data. We are leaders in geospatial analysis, spatiotemporal statistical methods, machine learning, and computational disease models.

Our Work

how we help the fight against malaria

Everything MAP does is geared around achieving impact. This only happens by engagement with those making the decisions that matter, including malaria policy makers, funders, and control program personnel.

mapping 
risk

We generate high-resolution maps of the malaria risk landscape at both global and national levels – estimating infection prevalence, incidence rates, and mortality by pixel.

ESTIMATING BURDEN

We estimate annual malaria cases and deaths in endemic countries – measuring the burden of the disease and the direction of trends towards international targets.

TRACKING INTERVENTIONS

We track the coverage of malaria drugs, diagnostics, and vector control to understand which populations may be less well protected.

PLANNING COMMODITIES

We provide tools for calculating malaria commodity needs, enabling countries to quantify the resources they need to protect their populations.

Evaluating Impact

We use statistical models to infer the impact that current control measures are having on malaria transmission and burden – this can inform refinement of control strategies.
