About MAP

The Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) brings together researchers based around the world with expertise in a wide range of disciplines from public health to mathematics, geography and epidemiology. We work together to generate new and innovative methods of mapping malaria risk. Ultimately our goal is to produce a comprehensive range of maps and estimates that will support effective planning of malaria control at national and international scales. A history of the formation of MAP is available on the Department of Zoology page, Using maps to defeat malaria.

The group is also integrated with a network of international health research at the University of Oxford, providing strong links to clinical expertise in tropical medicine.

We have assembled a unique spatial database that we use to develop our maps, and which we make available to others online.
