Malaria is a global health challenge that disproportionately affects populations in sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the developing world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020 there were an estimated 241 million cases of malaria, with 627,000 deaths reported in 85 countries. While significant progress has been made in the fight against malaria, there is still much work to be done.

The role of genomic surveillance in the fight against malaria

Genomic surveillance is also an important tool in the fight against malaria. By analyzing the genetic makeup of the malaria parasite, researchers can track the spread of drug-resistant strains and develop new treatments. Genomic surveillance helps identify the specific mosquito species transmitting the disease, which can inform targeted mosquito control efforts. Additionally, tracking the genetic diversity of the malaria parasite can help researchers understand how the disease evolves and adapts over time, which is crucial for developing effective long-term strategies for malaria control and elimination.
