Anopheles gambiae Genomic Surveillance Project Terms of Use

Anopheles gambiae Genomic Surveillance Project terms of use at MalariaGEN

Date: 19 Apr 2023

Although malaria is generally an endemic rather than an epidemic disease, and the focus of this project is on surveillance of disease vectors rather than pathogens, our data terms of use build on MalariaGEN’s approach to data sharing, and adopt norms which have been established for rapid sharing of pathogen genomic data during disease outbreaks. The primary rationale for this approach is that malaria remains a public health emergency, where ethically appropriate and rapid sharing of genomic surveillance data can help to detect and respond to biological threats such as new forms of insecticide resistance, and to adapt malaria vector control strategies to different settings and changing circumstances.

Accordingly, data from this project will be made publicly available before journal publication. Data from this project may be accessed and analysed at any time for the purposes of supporting public health programmes to control malaria and for teaching. Unless otherwise stated, analyses of project data are ongoing and publications are in preparation by project partners, and it is not permitted to use project data for publication (including any type of communication with the general public) without prior permission from the project.
