Quantitative assessment of the impact of malaria importation on local malaria dynamics.

The effect of vulnerability (the number of imported malaria per year per 1,000 inhabitants, δ) and of receptivity (the effective reproductive number, Rc ) on, (a) the parasite rate (PR) and (b) the proportion of local infection among all malaria infection. The red dashed line represents the empirical estimation of δ in Zanzibar according to the travel assessment survey, which is of 1.6 imported malaria cases per 1,000 inhabitants per year. The solid red line represents the contribution threshold above which local infections contribute to more than 50% to total malaria prevalence
