Malaria Elimination Maps Highlight Progress and Prospects | www.ucsf.edu

A new global Atlas charts prospects for malaria elimination by offering the first full-color, detailed depiction of a disease now declining in many parts of the globe. The “Atlas of Malaria-Eliminating Countries” spotlights countries successfully moving toward eliminating the disease, and provides a visual tool to help focus resources where they are needed most.

Created by the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), with funding from the ExxonMobil Foundation, and in partnership with the Malaria Atlas Project at the University of Oxford, the new atlas will be released on Oct. 17, 2011, coinciding with the second Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Malaria Forum in Seattle, “Optimism and Urgency.” A companion publication, the “Atlas of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network,” is being released on the same day.
