A low proportion of malaria-suspected patients sought treatment within 24 h of fever onset compared to the national target.
The number of index cases per kebele may enhance RACD efforts to detect additional malaria cases in low transmission settings
The common G6PD*A− (G202A) or Mediterranean (C563T) variants were not observed in this nationwide study.
There was a high degree of genetic diversity with multiple clones in P. falciparum isolates from Northwest Ethiopia suggesting that there is a need for improved malaria control efforts in this region.
As the prevalence of G6PD deficiency seems low in this area, the use of 8-aminoquinolines should be encouraged.
Malaria is still among the major public health problems in the country. P. falciparum is the dominant species in the study area followed by P. vivax.
The painted wall surface and standard spray showed better residual efficacy.
In this study, travel to farms in the lowlands and inadequate health information on malaria were risk factors for malaria in villages around Lake Tana.
A very low prevalence of G6PDd was detected in the present study populations.
The study showed that the median serviceable life of LLINs is only 12 months.
