Using maps to defeat malaria: history of MAP

A history of the formation of the Malaria Atalas Project (MAP) is available on the Department of Zoology page, Using maps to defeat malaria.

It includes information on how MAP was set up to help address some of the biggest threats to global public health, key figures involved, breakthroughs in research regarding methodology and the global distribution of Plasmodium falciparum, and MAP's status today as a WHO Collaborating Centre in Geospatial Disease Modelling.
