Seroprevalence data for antibodies against A) Plasmodium falciparum merozoite surface protein 119 (MSP-119), B) P. falciparum apical membrane antigen 1 (AMA-1), C) P. vivax MSP-119, and D) P. vivax AMA-1 by age in the study population, Somalia, 2008. Gray lines indicate 95% confidence intervals. Seroconversion rates (95% confidence intervals) were as follows: P. falciparum MSP-119 0.0082 (0.0068–0.097); AMA-1 0.0053 (0.0042–0.0066); P. vivax MSP-119 0.0086 (0.0055–0.0133); AMA-1 0.0075 (0.0050–0
