Defining the relationship between Plasmodium falciparum parasite rate and clinical disease: statistical models for disease burden estimation

Epidemiologists have, therefore, frequently defaulted to actively measuring malaria in population cohorts through time. Measuring the clinical incidence of malaria longitudinally is labour-intensive and impossible to undertake universally.
