A new generation of risk maps: Multimeric approaches using routine data and surveys

Punam Amratia, MAP

Puman provided a brief and concise overview of a new generation of risk maps. She stated that malaria stratification involves the classification of geographical areas or localities according to the risk of malaria and has long been recognized as an essential element of efficient resource allocation and a prerequisite for the rational targeting of interventions. This entails robust and accurate maps of disease burden because disease metrics of prevalence often have contradictory patterns to incidence. She underscored the fact that understanding both metrics and their pros and cons is key for robust estimates. Punam briefed the participants on the current state of the field and discussed what estimates are important, what data are available, and what adjustments are required. After presenting a series of annual average risk maps, Punam underpinned how these risk maps can inform stratification
