Try the following WHO pages of the Control of Tropical Diseases Divi-
sion with the following URL:

http://www.who.ch/ctd/

Click on the "Malaria Prevention and Control" hyperlink, and the 
first paragraph will give you some information on Malaria. Below the 
introductory paragraph is a "Disease Situation", under which are hy-
perlinks to "Burdens and trends", "Latest epidemiological data" and 
"Geographical Distribution".

You can save the Map of the "Geographical Distribution" to your hard 
disk by going over the map, clicking over it with your right mouse 
and selecting "Save Image As..". Then click OK and the map will be 
saved as a .jpg file that you can print or insert into your report as 
a picture.

I wish you the best in your project.

Brian
