Description

Community case management and universal access to testing before treating for malaria has been endorsed by agencies such as, WHO, UNICEF and major civil society organisations.

This strategy, combined with services for other childhood illnesse,s have been scaled up in 20 sub‐Saharan Africa countries. It aims to increase access to prompt, effective treatment to those where significant barriers to public health systems exist.

Despite the increased momentum behind the use of community based programmes and malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDT), limited evidence exists on their operationalization in different transmission settings using different community providers.

Project design and results are available in the policy brief and posters below.
