A Long Neglected World Malaria Map: Plasmodium vivax Endemicity in 2010
TLDR
This first systematic effort to map the global endemicity of Plasmodium vivax is presented, intended to contribute to a much-needed paradigm shift towards geographically stratified and evidence-based planning for P. v Vivax control and elimination.
Ross, Macdonald, and a Theory for the Dynamics and Control of Mosquito-Transmitted Pathogens
TLDR
The Ross-Macdonald theory has since played a central role in development of research on mosquito-borne pathogen transmission and the development of strategies for mosquitoes-borne disease prevention.
Targeting Asymptomatic Malaria Infections: Active Surveillance in Control and Elimination
TLDR
It is argued that the evidence for its effectiveness is sparse and that targeted mass drug administration should be evaluated as an alternative or addition to active case detection.
The many projected futures of dengue
TLDR
This Review compares the main approaches that have been used to model the future global distribution of dengue and proposes a set of minimum criteria for future projections that, by analogy, are applicable to other vector-borne diseases.
Geographical distribution and risk factors associated with enteric diseases in Vietnam.
TLDR
Shigellosis was highest in the Central Highlands and was significantly associated with rainfall and urban poverty; typhoid fever prevailed in the Mekong River Delta and was most associated with vapor pressure and river/stream drinking water; and cholera predominated along the Central Coastal regions and correlated positively with rainfalland public well drinking water.
Mapping HIV prevalence in sub-Saharan Africa between 2000 and 2017
TLDR
This analysis reveals substantial within-country variation in the prevalence of HIV throughout sub-Saharan Africa and local differences in both the direction and rate of change in HIV prevalence between 2000 and 2017, highlighting the degree to which important local differences are masked when examining trends at the country level.
Ecological theory to enhance infectious disease control and public health policy.
TLDR
The theoretical tools of ecology and epidemiology may be the cornerstone in constructing future programs aimed at preventing and controlling infectious diseases throughout the world.
