In Burkina Faso, malaria is a major public health problem and the leading cause of death among children. A case study on the geographic dimension of malaria in Kossi Province in 2008 was carried out in order to assess spatial and temporal variation at a regional scale. While transmission seasonality appeared to be driven mainly by climatic factors, large regional differences in malaria seasonality and incidence were observed and linked to physio- and sociogeographic disparities ...
