Malaria still accounts for a huge medical, social and economic burden in sub-Saharan Africa. Fredrick Kateera explores biomedical aspects of a community-based approach that identifies malaria associated burden, risk factors of infection, gaps in knowledge and challenges associated with malaria control interventions. By pin-pointing these, an evidence-based setting-specific approach can then be developed, which can plausibly lead to further reductions in malaria transmission.
