CDC Releases Malaria Risk Map Application
CDC announces the release of additional malaria resources: the Malaria Risk Map, the Blood Donor Screening webpage, and an email subscription service for notification about malaria outbreaks.

Malaria Risk Map

The Malaria Risk Map (www.cdc.gov/malaria/risk_map) is an interactive map that provides location-specific information on current CDC assessments of malaria risk and recommendations for preventive malaria treatment. This map was initially developed to provide blood banks with information to assess risk of malaria exposure in potential donors. The map can also be used by health care providers and travelers to determine recommended preventive malaria treatment by country of travel. This map is undergoing final development, and your feedback is appreciated (mrmfeedback@cdc.gov).

A new Blood Donor Screening webpage (www.cdc.gov/malaria/blood_donor.htm) has been added to the "Information for specific groups and settings" section of the malaria homepage. This page will provide blood banks with links to resources that can help them determine risk of malaria exposure in potential donors.

CDC is also providing an email subscription service for prompt notification about malaria outbreaks, changes to malaria risk assessments, changes in recommendations for preventive malaria treatment, and other related information. Subscribe to get email updates.
