There was a considerable reduction of the proportion of malaria among fevers over time in Africa. This decline provides evidence for the policy change from presumptive anti-malarial treatment of all children with fever to laboratory diagnosis and treatment upon result.

There has been a marked decline in malaria in the study villages during the past few years. This decline is likely to be due to a combination of factors that include improved access to malaria treatment provided by the trained village helpers, protection from mosquitoes by increased availability of insecticide-impregnated bed nets and a reduced vector density.

Open Access | Comparative field performance and adherence to test results of four malaria rapid diagnostic tests among febrile patients more than five years of age in Blantyre, Malawi

The results of this evaluation, combined with other published data and global recommendations, have been used to select RDTs for national scale-up. In addition, the study identified some key issues that need to be further delineated: the low field specificity of RDTs, variable RDT performance by different cadres of health workers and the need for a robust quality assurance system.

Open Access | Comparison of anaemia and parasitaemia as indicators of malaria control in household and EPI-health facility surveys in Malawi

Increasing access to effective malaria prevention was associated with a reduced burden of malaria in young Malawian children. Anaemia measured at the HF level at time of routine vaccination may be a good surrogate indicator for its measurement at the HH level in evaluating national malaria control programmes.

Immunology: Parasitaemia levels in Plasmodium chabaudi infected-mice modify IFN-gamma and IL-10 expression after a homologous or heterologous challenge

CB6F1 mice infected with the nonlethal Plasmodium chabaudi chabaudi AS suffer parasitaemia levels up to 40% (full parasitaemia, FP) and develop both homologous and heterologous (against the lethal Plasmodium yoelii 17XL) protective immunity.

The objective of this study was to identify demographic, environmental and socioeconomic risk factors and spatial patterns of Plasmodium falciparum parasitaemia in a high endemicity area of Africa, and to specify how this information can facilitate improved malaria control at the district level.
