We present three cases of unusual and complicated malaria caused by Plasmodium vivax.
Community health workers can be trained to use RDTs and timers to assess and manage malaria and pneumonia in children.
Everybody used poor quality malaria treatment services but the poor people used providers with poor quality malaria treatment services more than others.
Although RDTs had low sensitivity and specificity, which varied widely depending on fever and parasite density, using RDTs reduced over-treatment with anti-malarials significantly.
The benzo[a]phenoxazine derivative, SSJ-183 has shown excellent anti-malarial efficacy and safety.
Pharmacological mechanism-based modeling was refined and used to develop an in silico model of antimalarial drug treatment validated against clinical and field data.
CHWs are effective delivery points for prompt and effective malaria case management at community level.
Fewer children had early treatment failure and the mean temperature was slightly lower in the afternoon on day 0 in the paracetamol group.
Subsidizing ACT in the retail sector can significantly increase ACT coverage for reported fevers in rural areas.
The study raises issues that should inform a communications strategy and guide policy decisions within Kenya on eventual malaria vaccine introduction.
