In this collection, the prevalence of P. falciparum infection in the M form was equivalent to infection in the S form (no molecular form differential infection).
It was found that most of the participants know about ACT and treatment guidelines for malaria.
This study evaluated the durability, efficacy and retention of PermaNet(R) 2.0 after five years of use in a Tanzanian community.
Dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine was as effective and well-tolerated as artemether-lumefantrine in the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria.
A longitudinal decline in the density of malaria mosquito vectors was seen during both study periods despite the absence of organized vector control.
Despite reported falling transmission in much of sub-Saharan Africa, malaria remains a leading cause of inpatient admissions and mortality in paediatric wards.
The intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy (IPTp) with sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) has been a key component of the focused antenatal care package for nearly a decade, reducing the burden of low birthweight attributable to malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.
Remote sensing technologies can be used to target malaria control interventions in a region of declining malaria transmission in southern Zambia, enabling a more efficient use of resources for malaria elimination.
Transmission was sustained by A. arabiensis, whose populations were facilitated by installation of man-made water distribution and catchment systems.
Studies conducted in The Gambia and Malawi suggest that blood group O confers a higher risk of active placental infection in primiparae, but a significantly lower risk in multiparae.
