Gates Foundation releases interactive malaria map

US: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation released an interactive map to raise awareness about its campaign to end malaria. The map is the first interactive infographic added to the Foundation’s digital tool belt. It is another step in the Foundation’s long-term fight to eradicate malaria.
There are three main components to the infographic: an overview of progress within individual countries, an explanation of methods being used on the ground, and a comparison of the number of lives saved globally with and without the Foundation’s proposed intervention.
Through the digital map, viewers can explore the work of the campaign in more than 50 countries. This includes handing out bed nets and insecticide sprays, case management, preventative treatments during pregnancy and antimalarial drugs.
