Quantifying aggregated uncertainty in Plasmodim falciparum malaria prevalence and populations at risk via efficient space-time geostatistical joint simulation

Abstract:

Risk maps estimating the spatial distribution of infectious diseases are required to guide public health policy from local to global scales. The advent of model-based geostatistics (MBG) has allowed these maps to be generated in a formal statistical framework, providing robust metrics of map uncertainty that enhances their utility for decision-makers. In many settings, decision-makers require spatially aggregated measures over large regions such as the mean prevalence within a country or admi...
