Clinton Health Access Initiative is supporting the National Malaria program in Guatemala to eliminate malaria by 2020.

Although Guatemala has made great progress in reducing its malaria burden in recent decades, the national program will need to build up program capacity to address the ongoing threat of malaria. National surveillance data from Guatemala suggest that malaria transmission is highly concentrated in certain regions of the country. In 2015, 5,437 confirmed cases were reported, with approximately 66% in Escuintla. Escuintla is heavily characterized by agriculture including large-scale sugar, banana and palm oil plantations.

By tracing structures you will help the malaria program to better understand settlement patterns, estimate the number of households in a village, target interventions, and better plan for vector control operations on the ground. Vector control operations will be intensified this year. Join the effort to eliminate malaria from Guatemala and help make central America the next region to be rid of this treatable and preventable disease!

The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur
