Mapping Malaria Risk in Dakar, Senegal

Abstract : Independent entomological variables and human socio-economic characteristics can influence the risk of malaria infection in urban areas, yet the imbalanced spatial distribution of infection remains in question. There is often a lack of simultaneous consideration of the factors responsible for the transmission of parasites. This work examines interactions between the entomological profile of urban places and their socio-economical characterization through the implementation of a geographic information system (GIS) database.
