Geographic-genetic analysis of Plasmodium falciparum parasite populations from surveys of primary school children in Western Kenya

Abstract:

Background

Malaria control, and finally malaria elimination, requires the identification and targeting of residual foci or hotspots of transmission. However, the level of parasite mixing within and between geographical locations is likely to impact the effectiveness and durability of control interventions and thus should be taken into consideration when developing control programs.
