Quantifying malaria endemicity in Ethiopia: Implication for moving away from control towards elimination and eradication
General objective of the study
The overall objective of this study is to quantify malaria endemicity in Ethiopia.
- To quantify and describe malaria endemicity using three different techniques (spleenometry, parasitemia and antibody test) and to compare the result to identify best fit method to the context
- To determine the level of hemoglobin and anemia among children included in the study (2-9 years) and examine its relationship with malaria infection and splenomegaly
- To predict malaria endemicity from mean hemoglobin level and asses utility of the prediction model as alternative tool to measure malaria endemicity
- Modelling the Prevalence and the age-dependent Force of Infection Directly from Antibody Levels
