Legacy database on malaria prevalence since 1900

Malaria transmission is influenced by climate, land use and deliberate intervention. The study provides quantitative data comprising 50,424 surveys at 36,966 geocoded locations to cover 115 years (1900 – 2015) of malaria history in sub-Saharan Africa. The results show that the African continent has witnessed a long-term decline in the prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum from […]

Severe malaria incidence and transmission intensity

The study assessed the incidence of pediatric severe malaria admissions from 13 hospitals in East Africa from 2006 to 2020. From figure 4, the median fit for the Bayesian regression model is denoted by the thick black line, with 95% and 99% highest density intervals in dark and light blue, respectively. Grey points and vertical […]

Malaria hospitalization in East Africa: age, phenotype and transmission intensity

The research sought to understand the age patterns of disease which is important to consider in targeting interventions. It helps maximize cost-effective impacts e.g. in the new malaria chemoprevention and vaccine initiatives that target young children attending routine immunization services. The study explored the relationships between age and severity of malaria hospitalization versus malaria transmission […]
