This is the first pvdbp genetic diversity study from an African country. Sudanese isolates display high haplotype diversity and the gene is under selective pressure.
The present study reveals that minor populations of An. arabiensis larval forms are adapted to breed in polluted urban habitats, which further influenced susceptibility to Temephos, especially for the melanic larval forms.
During the study, there was a high prevalence of placental malaria in Blue Nile State-Sudan, as the enhanced control activities were not practiced, leading to adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as maternal anaemia and LBW.
DHA–PPQ is an efficacious ACT and candidate for replacement of first-line treatment in Sudan while AS/SP showed high treatment failure rate and must be replaced.
The findings of this study call for a need to review the Sudan malaria treatment policy.
This study was conducted to determine the malaria parasite density among children using actual white blood cell (WBC) and the assumed WBC counts (8.0 × 109/l).
Overall, ACT knowledge among frontline health care providers is very poor.
Lessons from the failed WHO Blue Nile Health Project in central Sudan, 1980-1990
This study aimed to investigate the adherence to malaria national protocol for the management of malaria among under five years old children.
