From: Global distribution of malaria-resistant MHC-HLA alleles: the number and frequencies of alleles and malaria risk

Figure 4

The relationship between malaria risk and the number of MHC alleles present in different countries. The relationship for malaria-endemic countries, local estimates of malaria risk, is shown on the left. The right panel includes every country considered on the global scale, when malaria risk is treated along the no impact – weak impact – strong impact axis. Points are country-specific estimates and lines are from regressions that account for the spatially non-random association of countries (dashed: non-significant, solid: significant).
