Both microscopy and RDTs performed suboptimally when compared to PCR. False negativity could be associated with the low parasite density profile of the samples
There is remarkable spatial heterogeneity of malaria burden which previous national and global spatial modelling studies failed to identify suggesting that the identification of malaria hot-spots within seemingly mesoendemic areas may require the generation of high resolution malaria maps.
The high level of acceptability among rural inhabitants in Nigeria identifies these communities as the ideal target consumer group for durable wall linings.
Artemisinin-based combination therapy for malaria has become widely available across Africa.

The M and S molecular forms of the African malaria vector Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae) are morphologically identical incipient species in which reproductive isolation is incomplete, enabling low-level gene flow between forms.
Pregnant women are at increased risk of malaria, but in Angola, epidemiologic data from this group is almost inexistent.
This study documents an important prevalence of 4 P. falciparum polymorphisms that predicts an antifolate resistance in Luanda.
In this study we demonstrated that P. vivax infections were found both in humans and mosquitoes, which means that active transmission is occurring.
The data showed that the implementation IPT using SP in children needs to be reviewed.
