The global distribution and burden of dengue
These new risk maps and infection estimates provide novel insights into the global, regional and national public health burden imposed by dengue and will help to guide improvements in disease control strategies using vaccine, drug and vector control methods, and in their economic evaluation.

The global distribution of clinical episodes of Plasmodium falciparum malaria
It is estimated that there were 515 (range 300–660) million episodes of clinical P. falciparum malaria in 2002, up to 50% higher than those reported by the World Health Organization and 200% higher for areas outside Africa, reflecting the WHO's reliance upon passive national reporting for these countries.

The rapid increase in the prevalence and disease burden of elevated BMI highlights the need for continued focus on surveillance of BMI and identification, implementation, and evaluation of evidence‐based interventions to address this problem.

The effect of malaria control on Plasmodium falciparum in Africa between 2000 and 2015
It is found that Plasmodium falciparum infection prevalence in endemic Africa halved and the incidence of clinical disease fell by 40% between 2000 and 2015, and interventions have averted 663 (542–753 credible interval) million clinical cases since 2000.
Refining the Global Spatial Limits of Dengue Virus Transmission by Evidence-Based Consensus
A contemporary global map of national-level dengue status is generated that assigns a relative measure of certainty and identifies gaps in the available evidence and provides a preliminary estimate of population at risk with an upper bound of 3.97 billion people.

Zika virus in the Americas: Early epidemiological and genetic findings
Results of phylogenetic and molecular clock analyses show a single introduction of ZikV into the Americas, which is estimated to have occurred between May and December 2013, more than 12 months before the detection of ZIKV in Brazil.
