The Spatial Distribution of P. falciparum Malaria PfPR2−10 Predictions Stratified by Endemicity Class

They are categorized as low risk PfPR2−10 ≤ 5%, light red; intermediate risk PfPR2−10 > 5% to < 40%, medium red; and high risk PfPR2−10 ≥ 40%, dark red. The map shows the class to which PfPR2−10 has the highest predicted probability of membership. The rest of the land area was defined as unstable risk (medium grey areas, where PfAPI < 0.1 per 1,000 pa) or no risk (light grey) [1719].
