Magalhães, Ricardo J.; Langa, Antonio; Sousa-Figueiredo, José; Clements, Archie CA; Nery, Susana


BACKGROUND Identifying and targeting hyper-endemic communities within meso-endemic areas constitutes an important challenge in malaria control in endemic countries such like Angola. Recent national and global predictive maps of malaria allow the identification and quantification of the population at risk of malaria infection in Angola, but their small-scale accuracy is surrounded by large uncertainties. To observe the need to develop higher resolution malaria endemicity maps a predictive risk...[Show more]
