Under the leadership of Director of Malaria Risk Stratification Dr Ewan Cameron, MAP is engaged in a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project to provide geospatial analysis for malaria risk stratification and intervention targeting. Areas of research include:
- Developing of new frameworks for modelling routine malaria surveillance data and integrating other malariometric data
- Improving methods for incorporating seasonality and other drivers of risk (vectors, human mobility, intervention coverage)
- Generating improved spatial models of intervention coverage and impact
- Understanding how patterns of treatment seeking vary within and across countries.
We work closely with the Clinton Health Access Initiative, which supports Dr Katherine Battle, and national malaria control programs in the countries they support, as well as other partner institutions to maximize the utility of model outputs for national malaria control planning.
