As part of its commitment to open-access data, MAP has now made it even easier to download a wealth of malariometric data and covariates from our website with the release of the Interactive Map Tool and the Country Profiles. Therein, you will find the following and more:
- The world’s biggest collection of bibliographically-referenced, downloadable Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax survey data
- The full suite of MAP’s modelled outputs on parasite rates, incidence, intervention coverage, vector occurrence, and more
- Downloadable, bibliographically-referenced blood disorder survey data (Duffy, G6PD Deficiency, Haemoglobin S)
- Downloadable, bibliographically-referenced vector insecticide resistance, bionomic, and occurrence surveys
These two new features on our website are the first of a number of updates over the coming months. We will be following on from our landmark Nature paper on malaria in Africa (https://www.nature.com/articles/nature15535) by publishing new global cubes of modelled parasite rates and incidence for Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax.
