  1. Unstable risk (Pf API < 0.1 per 1,000 people pa) and stable risk (Pf API ≥0.1 per 1,000 people pa). Stable risk is sub-divided into three age-standardized [40] and control related Pf PR2-10 endemicity classes [2]. For each region PAR is further subdivided by 0-4 year, 5-14 year and 15+ age groups.
