Malaria in the Americas: Time Series Epidemiological Data from 2000 to 2007
Data on the Region and on 21 countries are compiled in Excel charts embedded within a PowerPoint PDF presentation, first by Region and then by countries (listed alphabetically, with bookmarks to each of the 22 sections). There are six slides per country (according to data available), including (1) populations at risk, (2) malaria morbidity, (3) malariometric indices (API, AFI, AVI), (4) malaria microscopy, (5) slide positivity rate (SPR), and (6) malaria mortality.

Status of Malaria in the Americas, 1994-2007: A Series of Data Tables
These 13 Excel PDF data tables present the most recent summary of important malaria indicators/data: populations at risk, cases in non-malarious countries, morbidity in endemic countries, slide positivity rate, passive and active case detection, antimalarials used; completed treatments, malarious areas and control priorities, national malaria program budgets, and P. falciparum cases and treatment policies. Data presented in the tables are based on official annual reports from the health ministries of the respective countries.

Malaria Morbidity in the Americas: Baseline, Trends, and Targets (in Endemic Countries)
From more than 1.1 million cases reported in 2000, the Region lowered malaria morbidity to approximately 775,000 in 2007 or a decrease of 32%. These three tables and charts illustrate the current status of malaria in the 21 endemic countries of the Americas in comparison with baseline figures in 2000 and targets for 2010 and 2015. The overall decrease in 16 countries and increase in 5 were monitored in the context of strengthened health surveillance systems.
