According to Dr. Simon Hay, who leads the Malaria Atlas Project(MAP) group in Oxford, “one-size-fits all approach to controlling is not appropriate”. He believes that the new maps will provide a practical guide to help target resources.
The maps have been made freely available, along with a wide range of other malaria resources via the launch of a new online portal at www.map.ox.ac.uk.
