The National Malaria Programme in Botswana and the Clinton Health Access Initiative are working with the Missing Maps team to comprehensively build a footprint map to aid upcoming malaria control and elimination field work in 2016, as part of a final push at the total elimination of malaria. Botswana is well-positioned to be one of the first countries in southern Africa to eliminate malaria in the next few years. In 2015, Botswana reported 276 cases of malaria countrywide, a number that reduced from a staggering 8,056 in 2000 thanks to the scale-up of effective interventions and surveillance in the communities. Your contribution is critical. By mapping buildings, roads, homes, water bodies and key landmarks, you will help to improve operational efficiencies for the malaria control program, allowing for better targeting of limited resources, and accelerating Botswana’s progress on the path to malaria elimination by 2018. The resultant resource and cost savings will allow the government to invest in other public health areas, such as health education and awareness, improved housing and high quality disease surveillance. 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.
