The Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) was founded in 2005 and is now led by a team based at the University of Oxford, UK consisting of Professor Simon Hay, Dr Peter Gething, Dr Catherine Moyes, Professor Dave Smith, Dr Kevin Baird at the Eijkman-Oxford Clinical Research Unit in Indonesia, and Dr Andy Tatem at the University of Southampton, UK.
Dr Peter Gething is the Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre in Geospatial Disease Mapping based in Oxford. He leads a team of researchers who are investigating the spatiotemporal dynamics of falciparum malaria, estimating burden for countries in Africa and analysing the impact of intervention coverage on malaria prevalence, in collaboration witht he World Health Organization.
Professor Simon I. Hay leads a team of researchers who are investigating vivax malaria, including spatial variation in relapse rates, and the clinical and economic burdens of this disease. His group is also studying G6PD deficiency, which impacts on the treatment of P. vivax infections, and Duffy negativity, which influences peoples' susceptibility to infection. Simon is also head of the Spatial Ecology & Epidemiology Group, where the MAP group is based. For a list our previous researchers who now work with SEEG, please click here.
