The intensity of malaria transmission varies both naturally and as a consequence of human public health intervention. The relationship between transmission intensity and the rate at which antimalarial drug resistance evolves affects the design of surveillance programmes, and the likely impact of malaria control programmes. Several theoretical studies have investigated this relationship and their key results are summarised and interpreted. The most important result is that transmission intensity… CONTINUE READING
