Abstract

India figures prominently as the largest contributor of malaria deaths outside Africa in new global estimates by Christopher Murray and colleagues.1 However, India is often the greatest source of uncertainty in such estimates because of its sheer scale. With 85% of the 1·2 billion population at risk of malaria from both major parasite species, across varied transmission settings, and via six primary vectors, representative empirical data are hard to produce.
