Figure 1

Locations of the three study hospitals and the administrative districts they serve in the highlands of western Kenya. The inset map of Kenya shows the 15 districts designated by the Government of Kenya as at risk from unstable, temperature-limited, and hence epidemic malaria. The three districts shaded in red are those in the large map. The St. Joseph’s Catholic Mission Hospital (CMH) at Kilgoris, Tabaka CMH, and Kisii District Hospital are shown within their administrative boundaries of (1) Trans Mara, (2) Gucha and (3) Kisii Central District, respectively. The districts are shown against a backdrop of a digital elevation model for which a key is provided. North is to the top of the page.
