"This atlas sets a benchmark to support those countries closest to eliminating the last few strongholds of malaria within their borders and to encourage information sharing for the routine production of future maps, in ever greater detail and with improved precision, with which to document progress towards elimination" said Simon Hay, DPhil, Malaria Atlas Project, University of Oxford.

The new atlas shows the current state of the disease in countries embarking on malaria elimination, highlighting where the pockets of transmission remain and where the disease is concentrated. It depicts, for instance, how malaria is often concentrated along the borders between those countries that are eliminating malaria and neighboring countries that have a higher burden of disease.

"The atlas will be a useful tool for the global malaria community to better understand the prospects for malaria elimination," said Suzanne McCarron, President of the ExxonMobil Foundation. "The more we know about malaria, the more we can focus resources where they are needed most."

Highlighted within the atlas are key factors for malaria elimination, including maps that:

  • Link the risk of malaria transmission with climate data, showing the reach of the two major forms of parasites that cause malaria
  • Estimate the range of the dominant malaria-carrying mosquito species
  • Display locations of human populations at risk of malaria
