BackgroundMalaria epidemics in highland areas of East Africa have caused considerable morbidity and mortality in the past two decades. Knowledge of "hotspot" areas of high malaria incidence would allow for focused preventive interventions in resource-poor areas, particularly if the hotspot areas can be discerned during non-epidemic periods and predicted by ecological factors.MethodsTo address this issue, spatial distribution of malaria incidence and the relationship of ecological factors to… CONTINUE READING
