Different kinds of heterogeneity both have different effects and affect different outcomes. Patterns of co-variation are also important.

Malaria imported into Réunion Island: is there a risk of re-emergence of the disease?

Having reliable data on malaria prevalence and estimates of clinical malaria incidence, prior to an intensive control effort, is of paramount importance. The authors rightly argue that the efficacy/effectiveness of control efforts might be over-estimated if so were the baseline figures.
