Christopher Murray and colleagues' systematic analysis of 1980–2010 global malaria mortality figures1 reveals alarming deficiencies in current data collection, reporting systems, and analysis and interpretation of surveillance data. The huge differences between Murray and colleagues' mortality figures for malaria and those of WHO now call into question surveillance data for tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
