  • Source: World Health Organization, Global Health Observatory Data Repository/World Health Statistics ( WHO compiles data on reported cases of malaria, submitted by the national malaria control programmes (NMCPs).
  • Notes from original source: In endemic countries where health information system is weak and diagnosis is limited, national malaria control programmes (NMCPs) often collect data on the number of suspected cases, those tested and those confirmed. Probable or unconfirmed cases are calculated by subtracting the number tested from the number suspected.
